Send me an Acct. of what Lead they have had, and what the Sum comes to, I would gladly have what Lead’s in the Cellar As also the small quantity that is to make weight of and money Recd for it, lett me know whether you made any bargain with Mr Fenwick for it all, or not, for now the Peace is as good as Concluded, and Lead will rise at least 20s a Foth.  Am sorry for my Bro Mitfords illness, lett me know every week how he Continues – Send me as soon as conveniently you can a particular of Every Tenants name the Rent they Farm, and what Arrears they are in, for you must not use them to be ill accustomed to deferr paying their Rents so long, twill be yr own loss hereafter,  Always when you have £50 by you send me a bill for it, from Ald.
