[salute] [My]1 Dear
We have lived thro the Heat, and Toil, and Confusion of this Week. We have tried three
of the Kennebeck Proprietors Actions and have been fortunate enough to obtain them
all. Mr. Bowdoins great Case with Lord Edgcumbe, and Dr. Gardiners great Cause with
William Tyng the sherriff of this County particularly.2
There are about 60 or 70 Actions now remaining on the Dockett, and When we shall
get loose from this Town I cant yet foresee. However, I am determined not to stay
at York Court and therefore shall be at home, the latter End of the Week after next.
If I can be at home sooner I shall. I hope you are all well. God preserve you and
all our Family.—The good Man waits for this Letter and it is late Saturday night.
I am yr ever affectionate
