Mr. Armstrong                                        Newcastle May 7th 1733

In answer to yours, I desire you will Imediately wait upon Mr Allgood & take his directions how he woud have the Article drawn with Sr. Edward; I am sure he will not refuse to execute it, or give you Authority to do it in the Trustees names, which will be the same thing; pray be very particular in the number of Trees, their species & where they stand, it would be well if you would sell the Bark before they fall; if you can’t do it to advantage wee must take our chance afterwards, for as I understand matters are, (that if Sr.Edw[ar]d dye wee may have a bad bargain), wee might not slip this fall especially as wee are to pay £100 at next Midsummer, pray therefore consult Mr Allgood on Receipt hereof, & let no time be lost herein, for by what pass’d between him & me on Saturday last, I do not find him backwards to do anything that’s for the advantage of the Estate. If he think proper to decline meddling in this affair, I will Execute the article in Mr. Blacketts name, & take care to make the payment Contracted, if he has no objection thereto, Do not let <notuple> in the matter, you have made a bargain & it must be made good, This I think is the needful <so> conclude my self            Yours etc     JR
