Madam,

I Am by so many Obligations yours, that the only want of occasion to give you testimony thereof alone breeds in me all my discontent; esteeming my self unfortunate in nothing so much; and that the passion which carrieth me to your service, proves as unprofitable as extream; which forceth me to have recourse to intreaties, beseeching you to honour me with your commands, that (other means failing) my obedience may oblige you to believe that I am,

Madam, Your most humble and affectionate Servant.
