Mr Evans    								Sept. 12

      Since my return am informed that your Wind Jacks will do mighty well, but no pott nor pann can be Sett upon the fire while they are agoing, by Reason they bring down great quantity of Soot, which pray inform me by the first post whether this be true or not, for my <Range> is so large that we have sevrall potts and panns upon the fire while the Jack is going.  Pray direct for me at Newby that it will come safe to hand.     

      I am yr Assured friend


For Mr Evans   Clockmaker upon Elvitt Bridge In Durham
