Frederick Booth Esq
The entire letter received a very poor straight line BATH mark on the face but a fine one on the reverse, together with a Bishop Mark dated 9 May. The postage is unclear but seems to be manuscript indicated a postal charge of 4d.
Bath May 6th 1777
My wife returned on the third day with all the Writtings and should have wrote to you but two days after my wife came, a Gentleman called on me about the purchase of Farmington. I sent for the particulars which are reported, and Mr Athawes who is in treaty will be a(t) Farmington to view in a few days. As soon as he makes his report you shall hear from me and proceed to finish what has been so long depending. Since I saw you have had consultation with Mr. Sharp the surgeon as there appeard great danger from a matter gathering on the ankle bone but all is well. Our best Compts to you.
Note. Farmington is a small village off the A40 east of Nothleach in Gloucestershire.
