I discoursed Sr Tho Tankred this morning & have persuaded him to pay you £7 10s for the Tythe of what rape he may sow on Minskip Moor during yr time. This year is so farr spent that he cannot sow much & the low part of the moor is so wett that he design to let it for pasture for tis fit for nothing Else. I think I have made you a very good bargain for £7 10s in hand is better than nothing & if was my own case I should desire no better advantage

	Yr assured friend & servt

For the Revd Mr Morris
A Revd Edward Morris was a prebend of Ripon Cathedral between 1690-1720 and also mentioned as a vicar of Aldbrough
