Dear Sir

As I have been staying here for 2 or 3 weeks & do not purpose returning to Chippenham <2> before Monday the 18th Instant I thought I might be preventing a disappointmt by addressing a line or two from hence in reply to your favor of the 8th which has reached me here this day. If you consider the delay of importance & would request either Mr W Awdry or Mr Wilmot <3> to wait on the [illegible] agent (Mr [R?] Gundry- <4> I presume a meeting might be called in the absence of the Bailiff & should my signature be desired to the Petition & they will forward it to me I will sign it with much pleasure or indeed do any thing you might consider necessary & will point out to me by Letter addressed to me as above the Petition is at my Bank at Chippm and I have sent instructions to my Partner there ( Mr Poole <5> to forward your wishes by any means in his power I write in haste to Save the Post

& remain Dear Sir Yours truly
W. Gundry
