 Revd S.r
I forgot to beg of M.r Wheelock one  Thing, which is this; that you would write to  Mr Garrett in Favour of the Cauſe, which  his Daughter & I have been about.
The She T had no Time to ſettle the Affair  with me; makes me to Request ſuch a Favour  and after M.r Wheelock has known illegible ſend one me  a Word. I cant take it well from her, if at  Just at the End, She Should ^turn^ the Contrary.  But O M.r Wheelock! let me leave  myself with the Living and true God.
Sr My Horſe yesterday went conſide‐ rable Lame, So that I could hardly keep up  with M.r Peck. No more to add but  my Duty to you &c. in hast, from,
Sir,  your unworthy Ser.vt  Joseph Wooley
To  Rev.d M.r Eleazer Wheelock  Lebanon
