         In Weardale

Sir      Sir Walter wants two strong Galloways; such as you have got him before in Weardale - he says he thinks the last, which was a very good one, was bought of Pringle  -  so, if he, or any Body else you can hear of, has such Galloways as you think will answer Sir Walter’s purpose, he desires you will Buy him Two as soon as you can, & get them conveyed to Wallington.
