I thought it was neceſsary
to let you know that I go
to morrow for Inverary, I
shall stay there two or
three days, & as I return
to Edenbury I design to go
by Glascow, I have been informed
from good hands
that my Lord Montrose is resolved
to carrie the Elections
by making Barrons, so that
you will do well to have
your papers ready for those
barons you said you would
make. I hear there is to be
an Exchequer very soon &

dont doubt but My Ld Montrose
will take all the advantage
poſsible. Pray send the inclosed
to My Unckle John &
he told me severall of the Gentlemen
promised to make barrons in
case my Ld Montrose should
endeavour to run them down
that way, & I wish they may
be as good as their word, but
there seems to be A neceſsity
that every thing of that kind
must be readie att the same
time that My Ld Montrose
presents his. Tell Daniell not
to stir from his buiſsineſs
but to send me an account

how his affairs go. I am

Your friend &
humble servant
Ilay

I have left orders
for my letters which
come here to be
taken care of.
