Abstract

Letter dated August 11, 1670 (August 1, 1670 Old Style) from Phineas Pemberton to his father, Ralph Pemberton. He informs his father that the sheriff has issued orders for him to go to assizes in Lancaster. Despite this, he has not set out yet because his master and mistress, away for the week, desire he stay until they return. He tells his father not to inform the other Friends also on their way to appear at assizes in Lancaster. He concludes the letter by saying he has heard that a warrant was issued for his arrest following the events related in his previous letter from July 23, 1670.
