The Year of Jesus 1[4]82
Right well beloved brother, I recommend myself heartily to you, informing you that our mother and we are in good health, thanks be to God, and so we trust that you have been at Rayleigh [Essex] and given them 3s 4d and now we have [from] the day of doing our homage until next Michaelmas. Sir, I send to you Wylliam Mydwynter’s letter enclosed in this letter. I know not how to answer him, and our father’s tomb is a-setting up, and our uncle is here for money, and this day I depart into the Cotswolds, and how soon they will call upon [us] for the 20s of the sarplers I cannot say. I am at my wits end without your comfort. Sir, I have put your young grey horse in Thundersley Park [Essex] and there he has pasture I know, and there are but 3 horses going in all the park and you must pay the purser for his pasture 4d a week and I have promised him a bow, and I trust that he will see well to your horse, and make you sport at your coming. He is a man of master Mongewnbres. No more to you at this time. Jesus keep you. Written at London, the 3rd day of October.
by your brother
Richard Cely
I pray you send me a reply as soon as you can.

Addressed: To be given unto my brother George Cely, merchant of the Staple at Calais or the mart
