    at Bradley          

Madam     Your Tenant brought me the Favour of your Letter yesterday; but I could not enter into Treaty with him abot. the Boats, till some agreement is made between Sir Walter Blackett and you about the Materials of them.  I think the sooner this is done the better, and I shall be ready to treat with you or any you please to appoint, about them.   

     I shall speak to Mr Bell about the Damage your old Tenant may have sustained by the use the people have made of the Bridge, notwithstanding all Endeavour to prevent them,

     As to the purchase Money, it will be ready as soon as the Deeds are completed, which Mr Darwin writes me is not yet done, all the parties not having yet executed the surrenders - he says he is endeavouring to get this done.                   I am etc    HR
