42 Thomas Greene to Henry Dunster

    1655 the 20 August

    Cozen Dunstone

    My kind love remembered unto you; my wife your Cozen Mary [Baldes Coy?]1 though growing old is in good health. I heard from her the last Aprill. I heard your wife is dead. I desire you to remember my love to my son in law Benjamine Phillips and the rest of our Freinds. Crave [here] leave to rest.

    Your loveing Kinsman

    Tho. Greene2

    This day we sailed from the Barbadoes to England. I came from Ginny3 to Barbadoes.
