      I perceived yrs of the 24, that  you have gott tenants for Lysdon, I doubt they’ll never agree long, could wish you had Rickaby for them all, however if they be able people I can be no looser by them, you do mighty well in encourageing Rickaby, for perhaps one time or other you may get him into Seaton Lordship ,  Am glad Mr Fenwick is satisfy’d as to the mistake and take a bill of him payable to me or my Ordr for the moneys, no doubt but you may secure the oldr for <mart> as well as to putt in a new one which you know will be much less Charge, I had a letr lately from Maria who writes me that Sir Jno. Delaval has eight holes in his Arm, and that the Surgeons were fear’d of a gangrene, lett me know by yr first post whether it lies so or not.  Inclosed I send you Mr Carnady’s Acct what Mr Aislabie is Iindebted to him for a hhead of wine, which he desir’d  one Mr Shepherdson to chuse for him, the sume comes to £33.19.3 as you’ll see by the inclos’d, if you can get anything abated do, Receive the money of Mr Reay, and you may pay him when you come to Town again, take the Rect thus     Rec’d of James Mewburne the Sume of [left blank] in full for a h[ogs]head of wine which Mr Shepherdson bought for the use of John Aislabie Esqr and inclose the Rect by Saturday nights post to
