James                 							July 25

      I presume by yrs tht you have sold all yr Oates and I think at a good price, if you peruse my last letter you’ll find yr Selfe in a very great mistake, I only order’d you to Reserve 12 bushells, and you write me that I order’d you to keep 12 Bowls for my uses, So if the p[er]son you sold them to be willing you may keep back 12 bushells which is <yr> six Bowls,   As for Atkinson you may give him notice to provide himself Against Martinmas that I [struck out: ‘shall’] can make a much better Let of my Gardens than letting of them to him, which I am also to perceive by yr Lettr  So make me the best Lett you can of them, if <he have not> a lease of <the> Land from you may likewise give him notice to prove  <..> against Lady Day, or I’ll not suffer him to be there to abuse the Tenants, fail not to write per Saturday night’s post to    

      yr assr’d friend
