You have £180 in your hands, so have this day drawn a bill on you at sight for the said sum payable to Mr Featherstone & Comp on us for what I writ you concerning Sr H Lawsons Colliery was onely my friendships that I have for family, to hear it wrought to advantage am very Sorry it does not, Nich[olas] Haswell never used to pay petty sums for his farme I wondr the Parson of Ryton church should bring a citation against him, if that farme call’d Gares field ought to pay I would not dispute it wth him, for he may soon satisfy you by his book, I believe we have nothing to shew, that the farme is Exempt from paying petty Tyths, pray acqt me if there are any farmes in the lordship that does not pay petty tyths, & what the names of them are, your answer to this will much oblige
