	The Commission we have had the Honour to receive, Shall be now, imediately putt in execution, & we hope to discharge it with Fidelity, & Satisfaction to the Directors, & you Shall have our opinions, from time to time, how farr any of the Rents may be rais’d, or otherwise are improvable, but we cannot be so exact in a View in that point, as we may be enabled to be, by a Survey of the Estate. & we think a general Survey of it should be putt in execution imediately as the Estate is extensive & will require time.

	We intent to Sett forward, next Monday, to View as much of the Estate as we can before Christmas, & to receive the Rents thereof, & we will give you are opinions at our returne, what part of the Estate is most likely to Sell well; Castleridge is the most remote from the Bulk thereof.
