Holan moy! 
Lether dro dhe hern ha pris an holan gen Oliver Pender

Durt Newlin in Bleau Pawle,
22 East, 1711.

Sarra Wheage, Me rig fanja guz lether zithan lebma, buz nagerra termen dem de screffa du straft arta; rag nag ez buz lebban duath dem dro d’an hollan kear, merastha Dieu ma augutti ull gwerres; ma owne du vee ma duath do nisau blethan [Gatley MS: duath do ni (an blethan) dro] dro d’an hern, nages priize veeth es moase whath ragt’angi; an hern gwave vedn geele droeg d’an hern have, rag ma dro da deux mill hosket whath in Falmeth, gwerres ha de boas gwerres; ha mouns screffa inna warbeddn ni.
Memto {Na Gwitha Hern ree pell
            {Ken Gwarra; rag prijse da eu gwella

This is in Pender's own spelling but should be understandable if you read it aloud.
