Do You Transcribe It Exactly?

This letter comprises the "consents" on an 1839 marriage in Mercer County, Kentucky, between Edmund Beesly and Mildred Lake. Their apparent fathers sign the document.

The father of Mildred is Richard Lake. However, that's not what it looks like in this image. So, should it be transcribed as Ritchard or Bitchard?
