4, Old Palace Yard, S.W.
April 14 1858

Dear Sir,

I hope you will not think me troublesome; but, as Since I had the pleasure of your last letter I have got positive evidence to Kill off Gilbert, Son of Charles, [illegible] and, therefore, s.p. I have thought that you might be glad to Know the fact Our Case is adjourned till Tuesday next; when if you should happen to be in Town, or should feel sufficient interest in the Case to come up to hear it I shall have much pleasure in making arrangements for your convenient accommodation during the hearing.

I find on a careful perusal of one of Sir Johns Cancelled wills that he made a settlement between 1681 & 1688 which I did not find when at Lacock. I suppose there is not any chance of its being any where than in your muniment room there After the Kind manner in which you received me for my examination of your deeds I hesitate to trouble with even this enquiry but I am nevertheless bound to leave no stone unturned to arrive at evidence of which I may discover any trace

I beg to remain, Dear Sir, Yr very obedt Servant
