Pray let me know in your next, I mean by the first Post, how long you think Bacons Moss would last to cut no more Peats in it than would fill the Old Peat House Annually. I am

      Sir your Hble Servt.

                               Nich. Walton Jun.

P.S. I desire to hear from Willy Labourne every Sundays Post with an Ans. how all goes on.

Pray tell Mr Mulcaster I will send him a Standard
