The fine for inserting a new Life in Killhope & Wellhope Lease was settled wth Mr Halhead at one yrs rent; wch is a very good Rule for renewing Leases for Lives of Land Estates. I wish he had as good a one for measuring the value of the Lease for 2 yrs; ab[ou]t wch we had but little talk, because he s[ai]d I was come to soon; for he had not looked over his papers since I was wth him, wch was on the 30th of last month. I am etc  HR
