	It was a man of Law that Spoke to me abt my Ld Ossulston tho I have some reason to believe there are some of our Sharpe Sparks in this Town in the Secrett, the Security is a reant charge & I am apt to believe it’s the Maiden one and pretty considerable. If I can serve you any way it or any thing else you may be assured of all my little assistance.

	I must desire you’l take some speedy care abt perfecting a Fyne of the Comeys abt the Charltons that was acknowledged before Sergt Cuthberts but whether any Dep.t or where the delay is I know not.

	That matter of my Cosin Ridleys I shall get settled in a little time to their satisfaccon tho the money is not due this year & halfe but since they press it shall be done

	The interest of that moneys due upon Mrs Weargs death will be taken care of, I must defer the rest till another opportunity and shall acquaint Sr Wm Blackett with the kind expressions in your letter. I am Sr

	Your kinsman & faithfull serv.t	Geo Allgood
