John Peck to Sir John Trevor. MP (Cannon Row. Westminster): Mr Crichley has double the value of freehold lands in Flintshire required to be in the Commission of the Peace and is ready to purchase twice as much more and he is 'very sensible of his backfriends Captain Ellis and Daniel Lloyd and thinks if every bird had but his own feather he should not come much behind them'; will urge Mr Owen Andrewes to return the survey of Hawarden and Mold speedily although he will probably not be hurried; Thomas Owens will write about the gardens and orchards, but 'all the fruit trees excepting a few plums are blasted'; does not know if the late Sir Richard Lloyd's lands at Havathayerlo [?Hafotty Erlo] are to be sold but will enquire; has spoken to Mrs Brereton about the welfare of her son and she seems satisfied although she did not know where he was until the writer told her; has met General Mytton and they drank recipient's health 'in good sack very freely notwithstanding the heat of the weather' [endorsed 1651].
