Sir      I am sorry to find you are not to be here before the Fair for I would not chuse to give you the trouble of coming on purpose: & yet I doubt that will be too late a day for good Tenants to be met with; especially as I shall have to write to Leeds, after you have made your valuation, for Mr Wilson’s directions.

     As Sir Walter has ordered no more venison to be killed, but for the Mayor at Michas; & the Gentleman I had intended the Side for, that was brought in yesterday, is abroad.  I have sent it back for Dr Sharp who otherwise would not get a Taste of Sir Walter’s venison this year perhaps.  The Guild day is the 8 of next Month & the Mayor who gives an Entertainment that day is to have a Buck or a Doe, Mr Sadler knows what is usual So I desire you will tell him to kill it on the Wednesday before & send it in by Fryday & Mr Duffield may send in what pine Apples and other Fruit is ripe at the same time.                   I am etc    HR
