	I think we should have all the last Years Lead got in before any more is delivered from their Mills.  As soon as that is done you may begin - I should be glad to have your pay made soon and hope you are in great forwardness with your Accots.  -  About the 16th of next Month I suppose we may be able to have the pay so when you send the Accots. Let me know whether that day will Suit you  -  P.S. I wrote you on the 13th by Mr. Thos. Smith appointing him Clerk at Rookhope Mill and desire you will settle all about the House and Farm as will be most convenient to each party.

	Upon considering I find, by reason of other Engagemts.  we cannot have the pay day sooner than the 23rd of next Month.                                         I am etc   H.R.
