  • I have to-night despatch’d sixteen businesses, a month’s length apiece; by an abstract of success: I have conge’d with the duke, done my adieu with his nearest; buried a wife, mourned for her; writ to my lady mother I am returning; entertained my convoy; and between these main parcels of despatch effected many nicer needs: the last was the greatest, but that I have not ended yet.
