Honest Will

      I perceive by yours of the 23 past that you have had great floods, w[hi]ch has done much harm, w[hi]ch I am sorry for, as also that you have not yett lett the Walk Mill, and that the Tenn[an]t will not stand to her, unless he has some small allowance for repair of the house, it cannot be much he can desire, soe pray doe for me as if it were your own, and shall be satisfied therewith, I am

      Your assured Freind to serve you

To Mr Wm Lowes at Whittsheilds nigh Hexham 

Country keeper of Northumberland
