Mr Ward

I Recd yours of 7th I perceive sending out a horse is very chargeable however at present it cannot help’d, When the Bishoprick Militia is up againe I can send you a horse & a buff coat, when you acqt me the Militia will be up, but you should by all means get me two bearers before my Ld Scarborough go out of the country, & get his hand to the ordr if possible, I wd rather have Roman catholic than any others for my bearers for they pay the best, so I should think wth a little trouble you might Inquire out two, should be glad to hear if you were perfectly recovered of the lameness, wth my service to you & yours I am

I wish you cd get me a good substantiall ten[an]t for the Thompson farme, wth a good advance of Rent wch I have formerly heard you say might easily be done
