April 28 Sr, I had the favour of yrs of the 26 and am willing my Lady Hewley should have the Lordship of Newby for her security, except the house, gardens & two closes the one on the foreside of the house called the Cowfield, the other on the back side called the Long field, both which are the way to the house. I must own tis much more convenient for me to have the whole sum of one hand otherwise should be very unwilling to give four times the usual security for such a sum, and I can make it appear that I have Emprovd the grounds above 150 a year since I purchased them, & might have bought that value at twenty years purchase as cheap. Am much obliged to you for all this trouble given you by Sr yr obliged humble servt Thomas Adams Esq Pray let me have a copy of the Security wch I give my Lady Hewley and I hope you and Mr Ward will be so kind as to come to Newby where I shall execute the Security if not shall wait of you at the <mer To.> and as for the money it may lye in the hands where it is till I can get bills either of Yorke or Leeds for the Return of it.
