Honest Jacob     							Nov 10

      Am very much Concernd for yr great loss - God Almighty’s Will must be Obeyed, and we submissive to it

      As for what you write me concerning the letting of Fallowfield Mines, you may be Assur’d that I’ll act nothing in it but solely referr the whole Disposall of them to yr Selfe, and what bargain you make I’ll confirm,  I am altogether of opinion to keep the Wasts and the old shafts in my own hand and as for the forefields both East & West when you come to <treat>  I doubt not but youll lett them to my advantage, for I Solely depend upon you and shall either <Reserve> a quarter part for my Selfe, or not, as you shall think fitt, you may be assur’d that what you writ me concening the Discourse which was had at Weardale shall never come out of my mouth and I fancy yr Bro. may be sent to treat with with you about them for I had a lettr. last post from Mr Featherstone of Newcastle who is to be of  the partners to know my <Termes Demands>, So I writ him that I solely referr the business to yr Selfe, he writ me he had made inquiry into Fallowfield Mines, and when they send to treat with you give them a meeting any where and what charge you are at shall be repaid by     

      yr Assrd. Friend


Mr Jacob Peart                    

Harry Tulip has been with me these 14 days and I believe will stay 14 days longer
