I am moved to commend your lordship for a company now for Ireland. Captain Best, whom I understand to be of so good note for his good services in the wars, as he cannot but be known in that proportion to your lordship who, I know, beareth a register of mens' good deservedness in this profession.
Besides as I am informed, he needeth not the wars for an occupation but having good means followeth them upon a good spirit. To these respects, I thought only to add the circumstance of my good affection towards him and earnest recommendation of his request. And so I commend your lordship to God's best preservation. From Gray's Inn, this 1 of November.
