 +Noble Colonel,
 +I shall endeavour to observe the order you sent mee,since I wrote last to you wee have had a very tedious march,wee marched allmost 40 miles in one march: wee were within ten miles of Salisbury,​neare Wallop,​where wee met some straggling fellows of the Kings forces,​which being taken told us their Army was about 2000 horse & 4000 foote & were not farr from us upon the other side of the hill,​presently after came Colonel Feilding & his two men,by themselves,​which were all taken & confessed as much,​whereupon wee were commanded to make haste,being commanded by Col. Cooke.The enemy was upon our reare presently & tooke a few of those men whose horses were tyred,in our retreat wee were to march downe a very narrow lane,where wee fored to march ion a single file,in which lane the enemy met us,but wee forced our way & lost none of our Reg'​t,​but one of my men & one boy of Capt. Nicholess & 3 horses.Wee were given up for a lost Regiment but blesses be God yoy heare our loss.I am in desire your faithful servant.
 +Thos: Roe.
