I was so particularly engaged when your Letter, desiring some Slates from the Quarry at Kenton was brought me that I could not answer it then. I now acquaint you that Sr Wr Blackett has sold that estate to Lawyer Wilson of Leeds and that the Slates now winning there are intended for his own use as occasion may require and that I have no power to dispose of them – however to accomodate Mrs Ord I will venture to let you have one fother as you desire, for which I suppose you will have no Objection to pay five shillings – if so, you may shew this Letter to Harle the Quarry Man, who will let you have a fother; and you may pay me when you have opportunity. I am etc    HR
