To Mr Hunter			NewCa 14 Augt 1730

Sr, On comparing your Book with the Groves accot I find the following difference in the Oar Carriage wch I desire you will Enquire into & get rectified, for there must be a mistake either in the delivery at the groves or the receipt at the milns, to prevent wch the mill Clarks should at the End of every Quarter send the grove Stewards an exact accot of the oar received, mentioning therein every everyCarriers name & Quantity and especially at Xmas particular care ought to be taken that the Oar delivered & recd within the year do exactly agree wch I beg for the future may be strictly observed	I am with best Respects	Sir	yours &c JR
