Sir      On the other side is a Copy of Bryan & William Lowrys Article for a Lease of their Farm for Eleven Years from 12 May next at £170 a Year.  I tryed two or three good Tenants that wanted farms but could not reach the Rent that these offered, so I thought it best to Conclude with them; and hope it will meet with your Approbation - the repairs etc required by them, as mentioned in my last Letter, are not invested but they have my word they will be done.  Mr Drummond has not yet named his Security nor fixed whose to take his Level from - he appointed a day to meet me at Heaton about the latter, but failed coming.         I am etc    HR
