Appendix to Council Proceedings, 1681-85/6. 471

[William Penn to Charles Lord Baltimore.]

Westminster 10th 2nd Ap. 1681

It haveing graciously pleas'd the King vpon divers good
considerations to make me a neighbour to Mary-land, I
thought it necessary to make some offer of Freindship &
give a fitt rise for a future good correspondence. I omitt the
Perticulers of my pretentions, they are so kindly & amply
exprest in the Kings letter & to a man of good sense 'tis
enough to be once told of the matter.
The Bearer is a Gentleman & my Kinsman, to whom I have
left the manage of my affaires; as his integrety will insist
vpon my right, his prudence & experience will always guide
him from an indecent thing. I only begg one thing 'tis short
but the text of all tht can be said, do to me as thou wouldest
be done to. I am a strainger in the affaires of the Country,
he can have little light from me. I do so much depend vpon
the influence & prevalence the Kings goodness will haue vpon
thee, tht I omitt to be any further solicitous, belieueing tht a
great & prudent man will always act wth caution & obedience
to the mind of his Prince; so tht this lettr was rather to be
civil than to pass so ill a complemt vpon the Lord Baltimore
or the Kings letter as to think it could giue any aide to the
one or light to the other.
I shall conclude wth this request that It would please thee to
giue my Cotisen & Deputy all the dispatch possible in the
business of the bounds tht obserueing our just limitts in tht &
all other things we may begin & mantaine our Just and
friendly intercourse wch I do here promess to endeavour &
obserue on my part wth all the truth & care Imaginable; &
whateuer favours he receiues I shall place to my account,
& perhaps there are many ways by wch I may discharge them,
wch may giue the Lord Baltimore reason to belieue I do not
undeserue the usage & quality of his
My Respects to thy lady Very true Friend
My Kinsmans name is William Markham Wm. Penn
For my Honord Friend the Lord Baltimore Govr & Proprr of

Wm Penn Letter to my Lord Baltimore of the 10th of Aprill
