      I Recd yrs of the 29th and am very glad you are come to nigh Straight with Mr Barrow, shall ordr Will Lowes in case he owe me anything, if he do not pay it to sue for it and that he shall Farme my Tythes no more

      I perceive the Price of Corn with you is not nigh so high as tis here, however I think you have sold yr Oates extremely well, I heartily wish you could dispose of them all at that price, am sorry you cannot sell the wheat at the Barn door as you did the Oates, I would very willingly have all the Wheat thrashed sold & the money Recd for it before you come to Newby so that we may see what <Se..> we have ready <..> Bills of Exchange from Newcastle are as good to me as money besides it saves a great deal of trouble both in the Counting and bringing of it here, Always when you receive my money pay it into anyone in Newcastle, & take their bill for it 14 or 15 days after Date
