Nicolls discusses a Mr. Carler, who has disappeared in the winter without any news of his whereabouts or survival. It continues by reporting Nicolls' willingness to report in Dutch "when I write anything of Consequence." Docketed on address leaf.
I am extremly troubled at the [Loss] of Mr Carler, and yet I am not without hopes to have better Tydings of him, for it is very strange that Bastian de Winter with his Canoe could not help Mr Carler, or that hee went forwards after such an accident, unless he wanted provisions to returne!
I hope ere long to bring you the Newes of a good ship heere from Europe, and of [peace] together. According to yr desires I shall write to you in Dutch, when I write any thing of Consequence, yet I suppose every one of you can read English, at least Capt Baker can assist you at any Time.
This is all at present from
Yr affe[ctionate] freind
