[From MS. Records in Office of Secretary of State.]
Letter from Bromfield Ridley to Colonel John Williams.

30th Dec 1773.

D. Sir,

I found Cutbut Hudson's Corner on a White Oak on the left Hand of the Road as you go up to the Parson's just beyond a large Glade, I endeavour'd to find his Corner No. from there but fail'd. I enclose you a Memdm of three entries which I brought from Johnston, but no Corner Tree mention'd nor cou'd I find out at what particular Tree to begin, if you think entries can be made from so ambiguous a Memdm 'twou'd be best to make them, the Land is worth saving. I want much to see you before you go down but I can't possibly come to Night.

I am D. Sire
Yr very Hble Servt

Mrs Ridley joins me in her Compliments to Miss Aggy.
