Mr Barker,

	Since you were here I have a letter from a friend at Yorke who has bought me as many tiles as I shall have occasion for so you need not give yourselfe any further trouble upon that acct.

	Be sure you make all the haste imaginable to get the wood all ready I hope you may saw it into the Demensions there, and then it will be much better to bring. For fear this Lettr should miscarry I have sent a Copy of it for you at <Sessays>. Lett me have a line from you and acqt me what time you Judge all the wood may be ready & what loads there may be of it. I am yr assured fr. to serve you 

For Mr Cornelius Barker at the Rt Hon My Lord Downe’s att Cowick p Ferrybridge
