Chippenham <1>



I have received your favor <2> per messenger inclosing an Address which I will immediately hand to the Printer – I will give a few of the Electors intimation of your being at my House tomorrow Morning & hope nothing will prevent your meeting them –

I will attend to your wishes as to the distribution of Bread. –

I hope it is true that Mr Pusey <3> has resigned but I am inclined to doubt it, for Mr Scrope <4> called on Mr Colborne <5> yesterday after you left Chippenham to request his Vote, but was informed that both Votes were promised to Mr Neeld <6> & Mr Pusey –

Your request as to the Ringers shall be attended to. –

I remain Sir
Your very obed Servt
