Sepr. 16th.  was the onely acting trustee therein, & Timothy Edwards was the Agent, and between them both the money was lost, and then John Owen adressed him self to Mr. Rowlands of Caera, and told him that Mr Meyrick had peremptorily insisted that he should not be in the Number of the New trustees, and tells Mr. Edward Owen of Penrhose that Mr. Meyrick had strenuously opposed his being likewise of that Number, but that he & Maurice Lewis had got him in for one of them; Rowlands did not seem to resent it, but said that he had as much right to be as anyone haveing lost upon that account 2500L. but Ed. Owen resented it highly; & Said that he deserved more at Mr. Meyrick's hands & never thought Mr. Meyrick had been such a Hipocrite who had always professed such esteem for him, I being in Company( and a person they did not very well like ) stiffled a great deal their resentment, which I am satisfied they would have launched into extravagancies had they been in a free company, and tho Mr. Meyrick by endevouring to please them may think he acts a politick part, yet I am sure they hate him all alike .–
