Honest Will               							Sept. 19 1709

      The other day when I was at Newcastle Mr Alderman Ridley came and paid me his Tythe Rent and I gave him a Copy of the Same Rect. which he Shew’d me you had given him the Year before, he paid me likewise £4, for an <Alrena> for yr Uncle <Saunderson. Brown>, and I gave him a note to Mr Steward Barnes when he keeps my Courts to admit him tenant for that <Farm> be sure you Entertain the Steward very well & give him 3 Guineas which is the Sum my Father & I always gave him when he kept these Courts, be sure you kept an Exact Acct. of the Fines, & you shall be no looser by it, I perceive by Mr Ald. Ridley that he has purchased Farrowshields and that this year they have reaped some part of the Tythes, but that he will take a Lease for a year and pay the same Rent which his Bro. Barrow formerly paid, and I believe one cannot have a better rent.  With my kind Remembrances to yr father  I am 

      yr assur’d friend

Let me hear from you sometimes and the price of corn with you

For Mr Wm. Lowes
