This is a letter written to Wittewronge (?) on 8 December 1657 from Richard Ward of Bushy. He writes requesting support for a campaign to enable Captain Titus to return to England from exile and his signature on a document to be sent to the Lord Protector, Oliver Cromwell. The writer believes that Wittewronge's name will be more acceptable and persuasive to Cromwell in support of their cause. A transcript is available.
