Thomas Hepple has been over here - he is much alter’d & looks very Ill; indeed Mr Ingham strongly Recommends it to you to Exchange his Life in the Weardale Leases & that no Time should be lost in doing it. I have accordingly wrote to Mr Dew making the Bishop an offer of £538.2.6 which is splitting the Difference between my offer of Four Hundred Guineas & Mr Dews demand of £656.5s.0d. In Case he should accept of the offer, which I have some Reason to think that he will, it will be necessary I should have the Name & place of Abode etc of the Life that you would put in & likewise a Certificate of Jonathan Depledge being living. the former should be sent me immediately; the latter in about a Fortnight of which I shall write to you again. & am etc J.
