I desired my son Wise to Acqt you that I had a young Gelding one of my Coach horses gone blind and that <fancy> he might be serviceable to you for yr Ginn. If you think the price he sett of him to be too much if you please to send for him <If a.> shall pay me as he proves & shall take it out by price or Coales or Sinders. I’ll assure you he’s a very sound gelding both in his Wind & Limbs and if he had his eyes would not take £25 for him. So pray let me know by the first post whether you’ll have him or not that I may dispose of him elsewhere. I am yr very humble servt

For Henry Iveson Esq Mayr of Leeds
