      Mr. Hayward Letter to Nath. Pope
      To his approved loving friend Mr. Nathaniel Pope at Appomottacks in Vrginia.
      Loving friend Mr. Pope I kindly salute you with hopes of your health and as I bless God I am at this present I wrote you several letters that I had sent you some goods in Mr. Webber by way of New England and I would send a good cargo of goods by my man Richard Nicholls and I sent another by another servant of mine named Benjamin Stoane you have heard I know of the casting away of Mr. Webbers ship on the coast of New England and since that I have heard of the death of my servant Benjamin Stone but thanks be to God I hear that Richard Nicholls is safe arrived but I have not as yet received any letters from him since that he came into your parts but what I hear by some that came from thence that we have 15 sail of ships that came about 14 days since into Portsmith but are not as yet come into our downes I having not as yet received any letter from Richard Nicholls causes me to fear that all is not well with him but however I hope the best. I desire the Lord to preserve him I know that he hath had much business on his hands by reason of Bens death that it seemeth to me something difficult for him to go through without the assistance of some hope I hope that you have given him your best assistance and I hope that you and the rest that J deal withal! did keep your tobacco for Richard Nicholls as I did desire you per them to do in my former letters per Mr. Webber the whih letters J hope you have received by Mr. Thurston's ship. I did desire you to assist my servant as much as you would and I could and I would serve you here. I have sent you in Mr. Butlers a young man the which I would desire you to take into your house and let him have meat and drink and lodging and to employ him in the best employment that you shall see him capable of I conceive that he will be fit to teach your children for he can write a very good hand sifer very well and is able to keep your accounts if you conceive it met. I would desire you to take him in and to employ him till such time as you shall hear from me which shall be by the next shipping God willing his name is Samuel Mottershed I hope that my man hath made bold to leave your Overseer of my debts he hath left in the country I would desire you to take care of it and to receive it into your custody for my use and I will give you content for your care and pains and you shall find me willing to serve you here in England your brother hath sent you a letter by the young man named Sam. Mottershed your father is well also thus in
      haste I committ you to the protection of the Almighty and serve you.
