Dear Sir
Yo.r favor from — dated the 29th ult.o came duly and ſtill find you in a  hurry I wish you ma'n't make more hast than good ſpeed. May the Lord direct & guide  you, giving great ſucceſs in yo.r important undertaking, bleſsing you & dear M.r Occom  both in Soul and Body. Your piece of Cloth came to hand yesterday which with M.r Occoms ſhall  take care of 'till it is ſhip'd for Boston, I don't think it prudent if it was poſsible to put all  your things on board the Devonshire for fear of an accident and as it is probable your or M.r   Occom may have ſomething else by & by which you may want to ſend, it may go with  the Cloth, therefore ſhall keep it back a little while unleſs you order to the Contrary. We rejoice  to hear M.r Occom is better to whom we all beg kindly to be remember'd. Tho you hadn't a  copy of yo.r Letter to M.r Towgood, perhaps you could have recollected the ſubstance of it. Last  Sabbath day I receiv'd a Letter from Mr Jos: Keech of Ilminster ſignifying he had in conse‐ ‐quence of a Letter from you communi[gap: tear][guess: ca]ted your Affair & had collected of his Congregation  £4.11.2 which he wanted to know how to convey to you, I wrote him for answer that as it  was ſomewhat uncertain were to find you I thought it wou'd be better for him to remit it  to me, he ſends his Compliments & best wishes to you both adding that if you come into that ^part of the^ Country  he ſhall be glad to be favor'd with your Complany. M.rs Ludlow and my Daughter join me in best  Respects who am
