Sir/ I red your Lre abt. the 7 Rilies & two Coach Horses wch you are sending to eat up the Grass in the Nuns, as you have nothing for them at Wallingt[o]n. I am very glad there is Grass in the Nuns to help you: but you must not expect that. I can furnish them with hay; for I have scares enough to last till the new crop will be fit to eat; therefore when the Grass is gone you must provide for them either Hay or Grass elsewhere. I shall be with you ON Monday the 16th if I am well & am etc   HR
