237 Thomas Hollis to John White

    London August 30, 1721

    Mr. J. White


    I wrote unto you about 15 days since, I think by this ship, and referr, about an adventure in Capt. Janurin, who sailed hence last week, and I wish a good voyage. Capt. Davis is now arrived here and I hoped to have had my annual account by him, but I have no other from you then a Coppy of your letter dated June 5—without any PS—though I have a letter by him from Mr. Callender dated July 11. It may be I may receive one from you by another ship, which I am told is also daily expected.

    Pray acquaint Mr. President or Mr. Colman I have almost finisht my pacquet, which I design to send by Capt. Lethered and directed for the President, in answer to theirs to me. He talkes of sailing in a little while.

    My humble Servise to all the Gentlemen.


    Your very Loving Freind

    Thomas Hollis
