The above is a Copy of my last I had a letter from Peter yesterday, who write me <it> as my bed Chamber is Five Yards high, as nigh as he can Measure it, perhaps it may want ¼ or ½ an inch wch. Signifys nothing, though he writes it is exactly Five Yards, I know none can measure it so nicely, but may want ¼ or ½  an Inch, I wondr. I have not had one line from you since you went, I hope you have got the monys of Mr. Horton, If not be sure give him no longer time, I shall not go to Newby till after May day, & as my Ld. Warrington dos not come into the Countrey So soon as I expected, shall be obliged to refer my Journey to the bath to the Secd Season, wch. will be about the Middle of August, for I Cannot leave Newby as long as D[ea]r. Mitty is in this Country, for She d<ose> not into chesire till my Ld. return home, wth. my Service to my b Savill & his family 

Let me know how my bed gos forward,
