Chippenham <1>

June 21st 1831

Dear Sir

I have not been able to obtain the number of the Houses standing in the Parish of Chippenham in the year 1821, but Mr Bradbury <2> has ascertained that in 1822 there were 755, exclusive of 3 which stood in two Parishes, Vizt part in Chippenham and part in an adjoining Parish. – Thirty Houses have been erected in the Parish since 1822 –

I take this Opportunity of informing you that Mr Michell <3> has declined his Practice as an Attorney & Solicitor in favor of another Gentleman, and if at any future time you may feel disposed to grant me a portion of your favors, you may rely on punctuality and dispatch and the same will be gratefully remembered by

Dear Sir
Your most obed. Servt
