Honrd Sr, 

The Bill Inclosed in your Lre of the 18th for £12.11s.8d the amount of the Cloth & Brandy I sent you is accepted, I have paid for the 6 gross of Corks wth  Mr Stephensons Wine, they come to 11s wch I shall charge in your next accot, I desired Mr Stephensons Cooper to buy them, who having never called for the money, they were omitted to be charged Mr Allgoods Accots cannot be particulariz'd in the Bill, the Title, amount of the Dr & Cr side & the Ballance thereof, must surely be all thats necessary to be inserted this Term is lost, I hope the next will not end before all is Compleated, I was with Mr Gray this morning who says the Answer he had to draw is finished & that there need be no further Delay, Moohope grove is more hopeful than ever, they have discovered another Vein, as rich as the first, but are doubtful of her cutting very soon into the disputed ground, I have rendered Myself very troublesome by pressing forwards the Bill perpetuating our Evidence, all the Materialls were put into Lanclt Cuthberts hand in order to have it dispatched, but Mr Clarke has withdrawn them, & he promisses to finish it against next Saturday, In the meantime Mr Whit[fiel]d is picking up everything he can find, in order to defend what he calls his right, & its said has put the affair into Mr Ainsley's hand, who I fear will prove a better solicitr than any my Mar has in <to his> Service, this may prove an affair of great Consequence & should not be neglected in the manner it is, Mr Ords Improvemts at Kenton  consist in leading vast quantitys of Manner, taking care of the hedges etc., but not yet in any new buildings.
