Scope and Content

From Bishopsgate Street, London, to Madeley, Shropshire. William has enquired of Mr Cazemoore[?] concerning Mr de la Flechere [relation of John Fletcher] and apparently he [Cazemoore] had a letter from him in the last post. Flechere is apparently very well. Financial details are discussed with regard to Mary's income from her dead husband's [Swiss] estate. Reference is made to the fact that mail [to Switzerland] no longer passes via Ostend as that port has been in the hands of the French for two years, but rather via Hamburg.
