Mr Bentham

I Rec[eive]d your Letter p[er] Mr Loraine, & you may be assured I will never lett any of my Wasts at Fallowfield but to people that will work them themselves, & if there were [Wastes] there to Employ a hundred if twere possible to gett them, I’d sett them att Work, for the sooner they’re brought up the more my Advantage, I hear the forefield is come in very good w[hi]ch am heartily glad of, & I wish it may continue as good as Ever was in my time, the more the undertakers gett the more my Advantage, & I heartily wish them much luck of their bargain, for Im sure they’ll manage much better then I could have done, coming so seldom amongst them, should be glad to have a line from you now & then how affairs goes in your Country & you’ll oblige

Your Assured Friend

Revd Mr Bentham
