Madame, I thought it good for me to writ somthinge to
your Ladyship though I wrot the lesse, least by not writinge
I sholde seame to forget that dutie, which I iustly owe vnto
your Ladyship . I vnderstande allmost every weake by Mr
Stringar of your Ladyship good health & my fathers, which I am
very glad to heare of. I myself am somwhat sickly.
Some perswade me, that it is to a good end. My owne experi=
ence (as your Ladyship knoweth) is small to iudg. Suer I am, ther
is yet no certeintie of that thei saie. Yet I hope well, & I
praie to God I be not deceived of my hope. Thus with
humble remembrance of my dutie to my father I take
my leave, wisshinge your Ladyship longe to live in perfect health.
