Mr Ed: Allen


I have before me yours of the 30 past & have bene twice to waite upon Mr Tizicke but could not find him within some time this weeke we shall God willing meet & so w[ha]t can be done as to the dispersal of the Goods you mentione one with another but my opinion is that 26s a quarter for ….. will not be procured In this place my reason is this that none of the sd goods by themselves will yeild 24s a quarter I am very sure none in my Custody will & I am Crediblely Informed that Mr Tizicke offered his beanes for £11 p[er] Last & beleve me for the beanes I have none will bid me £8: alas<.> but we will se[e] w[ha]t can be done & advise you of the needfull In dew time sr if any bid me £12 a last for yoar w[hi]t[e] peese shall I take it I desire you would be pleased to afford your advice unto MB

I have bene with Mr Tizicke this morning have sene his beanes w[hi]ch are very good ones but I thinke they will not yeild £10 alast if they doe tis the height of the Markett so to dispose of all your goods one with another no probability of procuring 26s a quarter as above MB
