Honest Jacob,

	I perceive you have let the slating of the house &c and I think upon very moderate terms which am very well pleased withal. Be sure you see it done in the heat of summer, & the sooner they begin to get & lead slates the better.

	I hope there’ll be water enough this summer tho the Ginn be not taken up to Employ some people in the old wasts for tho there be not water to wash much they may get it ready for washing against the water

	I am yr assured friend

Mr Jacob Peart att Fallowfield
