My Lord,

A young man at this present time is in a very low condition and have been out of imployment of and on for these three or four years past and i have not any person to sustain me and my parents are so very poor: that they cannot doo any thing for me and i have scarce the necessarys of this life and i am almost reduced to extremity.

I am with very great respect my Lord

Your humble and distresed servent
