I have to thank you for yr. favr. of the 23d. past, which was the more acceptable, as I had heard that your fever had returned on Your Northern journey, & I feared might have continued your too long Companion.

She is the unfortunate wife of Philip Davis, who is...
Colo. Muse shewed me yr letter to his son requesting I would take charge of his Deeds to you, and procure them to be proved and recorded in the General Court, which I would most cheerfully have done, but do not go to Richmond ’til after that Court rises.
