Samuel Wood (Chester) to Sir John Trevor, MP, (Cannon Row, Westminster): has met Colonel Aldersey and some other friends and Colonel Ravenscroft who hope that 'by their late travails [?travels] into the upper part of the county they have obtained assurance of many voices for your son and they make no doubt but it will be clear for they persuade themselves there will be no opposition and that they neither he will perceive any stirring by Colonel Mytton only they desire Mr Trevor's presence at the time '; has no news about a sheriff but Colonel Ravenscroft asked him to tell recipient 'that on Monday next Flint Castle will be rendered if promise be not broken '; the bearer Peter Leigh of Chester may have more recent news and may also want recipient's help in a suit to Parliament which the writer hopes will be given as he is worthy of it.
