To Mr Chr Bell.                    			Farnacres 23rd Febry 1775

Mr Bell

       The bearer hereof Michael Spencer is a young Man but he is the person who makes and repairs all Mrs Crowleys Bellows and I am assured is a very good workman.  I desire you will let him have a Lodging and that you will set out with him for Langley Mill early tomorrow morning that as little time may be lost as possible in taking dimensions for the pieces of Leather which will be wanted for the Repair of the Bellows and that it be afterwards cut off, curried [sic] & sent to Langely Lead Mill with all possible expedition.  He will want a Shoemaker or two who I doubt not you will have ready in consequence of what I said to you but they will not I suppose be wanted til the Leather is got Curried.  I am sure I need not desire you to give any other assistance in your power because I am confident you will do that

       I am Your hble Servt
