I am exceeding glad that  you received our Letter, & am glad to  hear that you received it gladly; we  likewiſe received yours with Joy
I have often wrote Litters to my  Brethren, the Engliſh, to which I never  received any Anſwer; whether they  were loſt by the Way, or what the  Occation was that I received no Anſwer  I know not: but now I rejoice that  I have received an Anſwer, & hear that  our Letter [gap: stain][guess: h]as arived ſafely. I  am likewiſe glad to hear that you  have ſent an account of our Deſire to  England
The great Men have now  been together & I have told to them  the ^whole of the^ Letter that you ſent to us
Brother I ſend my hearty Love  to you, & to the [illegible] Miniſters, & to our  other Brethren that aſsiſt them
give my Service to the King
I remain   your Brother  Iſaac dakayenenſere
