Honest Jacob

      Acq[uain]t me by the first post how many people you have at work at the dead heaps, as also how Loraine goes forward with his work. I should be mighty glad to hear that Fallowfield Mines prov’d well for I heartily wish them as much profitt as I gett my selfe, I wonder they do not make many more Tryalls, Acq[uain]t me likewise how the Slaters goes foreward, I hope they have gott a good quantity at the Quarry ere this hasten both the leading & lying them on With all possible speed, for whole Slates are laid on the beginning of summer are much better than whats laid on afterwards

      I have 3 or 4 Herriots in Will Lowes Custody, who I have orderd by this post to lead them down to Tyne Green fair & to give them to Harry Tulip, and I desire Harry to buy me one or two little <beasts> more & bring them with him to Newby; as soon as this comes to your hand give a line to your Assured Friend

[For] Jacob Peart
