Sir,

Your Letter of the 7th2 concerning our Prisoners in the Golden-hand3 and Prince William4 came not an houre since to me; by what neglect I know not: I have sent to my Martiall at Leeds5, to be here on Moneday (if possible) and to march away with them; so that those Vessells shall speedily be cleared: Sir William Coventry gives me hopes our Lazers6 shall be cloathed, but you must coöperate or we shall be forgotten: I am Sir, Stylo Læconico7

Your most faithfull Servant
