Honest Jacob

      I rec[eive]d yours on the 22th with your advice Concerning letting of the slaggs I do so Intirely Depend upon your Judgem[en]t that I shall not Concerne my self in the letting of them bur refer them to you

      What washing Tubbs sive bottoms &c which I shall not have occasion for my self, sell them to the undertakers You know they have made use of them above 12 months so If they anything worse for their useing it is but reasonable they should make them good, I wonder in your letters you never name Fallowfeild groves I hear by severall hands that she is much richer then ever she was Either in my fathers time or mine, which pray god Continue her a long time so for I am as glad of it as the undertakers can be let me know in your next Letter how far from the day the ore has & how broad the vaine is & how many shafts they work it I am

      Your assured friend
