Seeing the Snow frost in that Winter shut each Valley up to itself for some time but I intend to Visit Sant Peete as soon as Pos- sible when I will search out all I can. And My Dear Sir you May depend I will Secure as much as Posible of his Small effects to either send you or if I see it is Likely for me to Visit England soon I will take Charge of them myself as they will then be taken Care of if the Lord in his providence spares Me.
