When I was with you I agreed to come on Saturday or Sunday but when I consider that we cannot expect an answer of your last letter from Sr William on Friday, and that it will be Sunday or Tuesdays post at soonest therefore I shall not come until I hear from you, my wife was gone to Steel hall when I came home so has not seen her but knows she will be very unease and therfor if you think their to be an absolute necessaty of my going pray be pleasd to wait two or three times of your opinion that its more likely that I will p.vail with Sr Wm then another, my thankfulness for that last favour with humble service to Madm Ord &  Daughter is all from Sr yr very humble svt

	Geo Mowbray

If you have no answer before Tuesday if Mr Brumel have the messenger ready he may come here any day after the post comes in, & if I miss the Coach shall ride to York.

If I must do anything in Hexham about the Coppyhold Estate here pray give me directions by the first opportunity
Date obscured, but presumably from the same as the others in this bundle. Reference to Madam Ord makes clear that John Ord was the recipient
