Correspondence

Scope and Content

William Griffith (Garegluyd) to Evan Edwards, esq., Baron of the Exchequer of Chester (Rhual): delay in receiving the recipient's letter, will be glad to provide accommodation for him, either alone or with his household, since the condition of the recipient's dwelling makes it necessary for him to move; he will then have the fellowship of the writer's brother George, who is also exiled from his home; they are in need of coal only, owing to the fact that shipping has not ventured thitherwards this summer from Moston and Picton; would be well to order a bark load to Holyhead; the recipient's household stuff can be temporarily stored at the house of Deputy Registrar, John Jones, at Bangor.

Endorsed is a draft reply:- it was his purpose to leave his wife and family at Rhual to take their fortunes, and to bring one man with him; the danger, however, now appears to have passed and he hears that Brereton has drawn the greatest part of his forces.
