to you again respecting the Payment of half a year rent
due at Michmas as for the Premises you held under Mr. Wingfield
at Bow. When your Wife, a little while age, brought the
Lady day Rent, she pleaded the Hardness of the Times, a large
family & some Promise made, by Mr. Wingfield to make you
an Abatement. All these Things may be strictly true but
Mr. Whas pur it out of her own Power, & out of the Power
of others to take your Case into Consideration, & this Hospital
has suffered so much by him, that the Treasurer is enjoined
to make the most of his Property, & has no Power to give

hope you will be ready with your Rent & will not fail
to bring it.

I am your humble Servt:
J. B.Rev
