I would not have you to come to Newby till after May day and not then till you hear from me. Upon Rect of this letter go to Mr Brumell and peruse the Letr I writ him by this post to procure an understanding man of Woods to go up with you on Tuesday or Wednesday next and Will Lowes and you will shew him all my Woods &c to Sett a just value upon Each. I shall gratify him for his trouble to his own satisfaction. I hope he’ll procure such a one that is both honest and an understanding Man in the valuation of Woods for shall make no great sale till I have every particular wood valued. When you are there you’ll have an opportunity to discourse Will <aruissing> about Whitshields. The latt. End of May send me a bill for £25 for Maria and Alethia quart’age.
