plank points, first have I Distroy'd & burnt everything in His
power

I have determind to stay all the week rather then leave this
business unreported. I must therefore request the Senate (should

thursday the 4th of Nov. if God Spares me I shall be down in
the mean time I am with the greatest Affection & esteem
Dr Sir Your friend & Servt
