Eliza. R., 28 July, 1685.
Honoured Sir:-
Yours l received by Mr Hallet with three
books, and am not a little concerned that
those now sent to Ashley R were miscarried,
for which, l hope it will no offence,
to declare my willingness to satisfy;
for there is no reason they should be lost
to you, and far less that the gift should
be reiterated for which l am oblidged [obliged?]
to own your debtor. And assure yourself if
you have any friends in Virginia, to find
me ready to receive your commands. l have
wrote to Mr. Wardrope, and beg you would
be pleased to order the safe conveyance
thereof unto his hands. l would have
likewise wrote a line to one Mr. Thomas
Barret, a minister who lived in S.
(South?) Carolina, who, when he wrote
to me from Ashley R., told me that
next week was to take shipping for
N.E., So that l conclude he is with
you. But, if there be no such
man in the country, let me [my?] letter
be returned.
l am yours in the Lord Jesus,
ffrancis [Francis?] Makemie.
