To Mr Armstrong

Give me four or five days notice before you let the new Bargains, for intend then to be at Allenheads if I possibly can, but if I come not proceed in telling them, as soon as the month is expired pray let me have a state of the live groves, you have not sent me a copy of the last bargains as you promis’d. I hope you go now briskly forward at Allenheads, how do you proceed in the Ginpump, what prospect have you gain’d , do you command the Water, & is the hushing at east & West end likely to be of no predujice to the groves. Let Rich’d draw out an acct of the charity deducted after these reckonings are over & don’t dispose of any part (save what you think necessary to old Hardy) without Mr Allgood’s directions. I am	JR
