Letter

Scope and Content

John Peck to [Sir John Trevor]: 'it much grieves me that my adversary and his agents should cast such a false aspersion upon me as to say that I am a backfriend to religion and religious men for I truly honour and wish the prosperity of both and it much troubles me to hear the daily complaints of the country for want of settled ministers in every parish for in divers churches there is no preaching or teaching in a month or more'; Daniel Lloyd has been speaking against recipient in company; will send as much money up as he can to help recipient provide for the preferment of his daughters; again urges recipient to find out Mr manley's lowest price for Pantiocyn; has bought 100 trees in Holt park at 8s each.
