Item: Letter to Elizabeth Browne Rogers Roche from Winwood Serjeant (15 June 1774)

 

Transcription:

 

lived so long in the family! I cannot help

criminal: Your sister was greatly affected at

it indeed: & must own, had I known anything

of an intention would have done any

that you were at Newbury a few hours before

my arrival: had I been any ways certain of

your return so soon, should have stayed the

wednesday over; for I wanted greatly to see you;

have so much to say to you: & rejoice that you

give us some encouragement of seeing you

this summer at Cambridge: I fear it will not

be
