at Dukesfield Mill

Sir/ I rec[iev]ed your Lre [Letter], & do not suppose you designed to prejudice the Farm you hold of Sir Thos Blackett; only you must be sensible that what you have done tends to the impovourishing of it, unless both you & Mr Hunter take proper care & look well after the management of your <subtenant>. But the great hazard is that this assignment & sale of the straw, will not meet with Sir Walter Blackett’s approbation. I have desired Mr Hunter to look closely after the future management of this Farm, & do not doubt but you will second him. I am etc HR
