      Agreeable to Mr Bell’s orders, wated upon Mr Heron who was concerned in the Indictments & acquainted him with Mr Adams Letter to the Surveyor of New Ridley & he says there can be no trial till Easter Sessions & that what Mr Adams has ment is that the Surveyor should attend at C’mas Sessions to enter into recognizance & have the Matter Trey’d at the Easter Sessions. I would have come to Town this Week as you desired but have got a little cold which has attacked my throat & makes me fearfull of the consequence since the last I had – but shall wate upon you the latter end of next week 

      & am Yrs &c   IH:Jr
