Curtis, Tony

Jane Owen to Sir William Maurice,

She received a letter from William Maurice after he had conferred with her cousin Ellis Brynkir - but now she has received a process. If she had seen William Maurice's man, who served it, she would have written to know his mind therein, since he had written to say that agreement was best. So she thought and was always very willing that William Maurice should make amends between them. Postscript: If it please William Maurice to take up the matter she will pay for the process.

Jane Owen to her cousin Sir William Maurice,

Has been often beholden to William Maurice for many kind friendships. Assures herself that she will find him as loving as heretofore. Understands that her cousin, Mr Ellis Brynkir, purposes to trouble a nephew of hers (who with her consent matched with the grand-child of Richard ap Ievan ap Howel of Llanllyfni) with a suit for those lands which he enjoys by right of his wife. She was not desirious to entertain conference about the matter until his Worship was at home. Now if Mr Brynkir be pleased to come to any speech on the matter she will therein show herself more to his satisfaction, for his Worship's sake and her good cousin Mr Brynkir's mother, than she would do for any other in so unconscionable a cause. She is very confident in her nephew's title. She does not offer speech out of any distrust of the title ... but out of endeavour to continue good friends. Commendations to William Maurice and Lady Maurice, and to her good cousin, Mrs Anne Brynkir, 'who I know shall not be willing that any of her children should deal in such ungodly business'.
