Honest Jacob

      I rec[eive]d your Letter with the welcome news that Fallowfeild is likely to prove a lasting mine which Ime very glad of both for my own sake and the undertakers and I wish she may prove ten times as rich which I should never grudge

      When you designe to take up the Ginn send for the man that made it for he can take it in peices without the least prejudice to it

      I could have a Good tenn[an]t for fallowfeild house but am unwilling to let it so I will not hereafter be at any charge Either for Coal or Window sess I ought to have the window sess allowed me ever since I payd it because the Act of Parlia[ment] sais positively that duty shall be paid by the tenn[an]t & not the Landlord

      Assoon as the pay is over let me know how many peices of lead is made and what their whole pay came to I am

      Your assured friend
