Mr Alex[an]d[er] Whaley    Hardwoodshield 	Dukesf[iel]d 7th July 1779


I'm sorry to find when at Allenh[ea]ds mill last Week that what was agreed between you and me last Spring (in regard to the Lime you was to supply that Mill with) has not had the desired effect of preventing future complaints of want of Measure in the Loads sent; as we agreed there should be a Measure sent to the Mill as a standard and in case you could not afford the quantity - by it at the price that I was to advance it in proportion to what it might be larger then w[ha]t you sold to the Country - Mr Sparke tells me that 5 of your Loads will hardly by 2 1/2 by the Measure at the Mill and that your man (that brougt Lime to the Mill that morn[in]g that I was at the Mill) told him that he should have no better measure then what he then had upon his Horses and in case he would not charge them as full Loads he had orders not to leave them but to take them elsewhere - if this be so its quite contrary to what I expected and the agree[men]t above referred to - I should like to hear from you for I cannot suffer such things to pass un-redress'd - should have wrote you sooner but expected to have seen you at Stagshaw bank & talked the matter over  -  I'm  yrs &c
