	I have now Sold to Mr Fenwick 600 pieces of Lead which will take all the Lead that has Laid so long at newburn and most of the p[ie]ces that are in the Celler, so besure you hasten down to newburn all the Lead that lys at half way but let none come from the mill but what is all ready weigh’d of. the Cheapest way will be to have the Sale brought upon the key and weigh the Lead of that come from newburn there, and what is in the Celler may be weigh’d of where it lys

      If Sr J Delavall demand any money of you for Lady days rent for the tyths you must tell him you’ll pay the whole together at Michaelmas for in case you should pay him the ½ years rent he may pr.tend to take the tyth in kind, and so defraud me so besure you pay him not one farthing – you’r in a great mistake in saying that Sr John’s rent shou’d have been payd at Lady day last, for in case it had without having something under his hand that I shou’d receive the tythe that wll had absolutely been lost so does not name the ,<right> to you do you not <In..tion .. .. unto k…> and also pray order James Clarke the freeporter to do the same

      I am <..> your very humble Servt
