Rawdon asks Sloane to urge his brother to respond to Rawdon’s letters. He hopes Sloane has sent the seeds he promised by George Dunbar. Rawdon and his wife send their best wishes. Sir Arthur Rawdon (1662-1695), 2nd Baronet was the son of Sir George Rawdon, 1st Baronet and Hon. Dorothy Conway. Arthur married Helena Garham circa February 1681/2 (George Edward Cokayne, editor, The Complete Baronetage, 5 volumes (no date (c. 1900); reprint, Gloucester, U.K.: Alan Sutton Publishing, 1983), volume III, page 318).
