Honest Harry     						Di[tto  24 August 1713]

let me know by the very first post how many pieces of lead Mr Loraine has laying at the Mill & shall order Mewburne to go to fallowf[iel]d and weigh it off, & than will ord[e]r W[illia]m Lowes to pay him in case there be ten tun but not otherwise, you may assure his Creditors I will pay him punctually for every ten tuns he makes, therefore they need not Straighten him nor be too urgent with him for their moneys for they may depend upon it

      Shall Expect a full answer of this letter by a line p[e]r first post too

      y[ou]r assured Friend
