Scope and Content

John Peck to Sir John Trevor, MP (Cannon Row, Westminster): 'we are here very busy in settling the ? in Flintshire and Denbighshire. I have kept you off for Flintshire and had done the like for you in Denbighshire but that Captain Ball came in amongst us and demanded what Sir John Trevor was in, which begot a new inquiry. However I will want of my will but I will bring you off as I have done the other two for quartering. Captain Ball is so high since he was of the Commission that he holds no decorum in anything and I, since I was left out … not in that esteem with them as formerly. Therefore I desire that Captain Ball may be … out of the Commission as formerly and I in the same place I was in or to be left out of both the Commissions for I refrain until I be righted to take my oath for Flintshire'; the old miller owes £100 more than he is worth 'whose wife fears me not with her naughty tongue'; writer wishes for news of his son in Ireland; does not like the tenant at Plas Teg who is asking for the pigeon house and outhouses to be put into repair.
