Promise to Enable the Council to fulfill their Engagements of send-

necessity that this Present be made to them early in the Spring &
as the Time cannot be fixt untill I shall Receive your Answer I beg
the favour of you to give this Affair which is of so much Impor-

I am with perfect Esteem your Excellencys most Obedt Humble
