    Pall Mall Octr 4th 1769

    Dear Sir

    I am just returned to Town from a Tour of 13 Days thro the Counties of Bucks Oxford Berks & Hampshire; & have found your Letter of Sep 11 & 17,1 to which I give due Attention. I have seen Nobody since my Arrival in Town; but as a Mail is made up at the Secretary’s Office tonight, I choose to acknowledge the Receipt of your Letter by it, & to commit to you the inclosed Covers containing Letters which I brought with me from the Country: for I know not nor can now enquire of Ships brought bound for Boston. I am still unable to give you any political Intelligence, as Lord H is, I understand, not yet come to Town tho daily expected. By the first Ship for Boston you will hear further from me. At present I have but just time to make up my Packet.

    I am Sr &c.

    The Honble Lieut Govr Hutchinson.
