I have reced yours, but have not time now to send you the particulars of my paymnt here, neither do I think it very materiall, for if you set to every man his exact due, we will adjust all well enough when you come down, for shall have all my paymts ready drawn out for you against the time. Mr Blackett is very desirous to know how Mohope goes forwds, what likelihood there's of her proving a good grove, w[ha]t hands are imployed in her, & how the Bargains are let, wch you must let me know as soon as possible, Pray if you have not Drawn the Draught of the ground in Dispute with Mr Whitfield, send me down an accot in writing thereof as full as you can mentioning the particular places by wch we claim, & also those that he claims to in order to get a Bill fil'd to examine Witnesses & Commission out the Micha.s term, w[hi]ch will be lost unless you are expeditious in the Affair, Mr Dents who is to solicite the Affair being now here, I wish you could send it me before the day senight for he then talks for the South. I wish you had sent me a particular of the arrears as you promised wch I desire you will do on Receipt hereof, and also an accot how the £66.9.2 ¼ arises from the Corn Mill, wch accot will be necessary for me to have before the pay, you may liken us to bring down with you your gen[era]l accot wch I will examine wth my Books in order to its being agreed at the pay as you desired the charge of the pay may be bro[ugh]t into the next qua[rter] acct so need be no Obstacle, Three Horses will be sufficient for the money, I need not tell you to make the Charge of fetching the money as <earlie> as you can. I am etc J.R.
