      I perceive by yours that there was 120 pcs Lead brought down last Week, so lett me know what’s brought down this week & what at Newburne, you should order Jacob Peart to ride once a week down to Martin Fenwick, & see that no Lead lye by the halfe Way, for in a little time the ways will grow so bad that he will give over leading, Order him likewise to haste the smelting with all possible Speed.

      Acqt me how James Clark has his health at present and tell him I have not had a Lettr from him this long time, Give my service to Sir Jno. Delavall & acqt him that he has now an opportunity of having the Organ in the great Dining Room put into right order for Mr Smith the Organist is now altering the great Organ in St Nicholas Church, and I believe he’ll be very moderate as to the trouble, Be sure you come not to Newby till you bring Either Money or bills to sett all things streight betwixt us, fail not to write a line per Saturday night’s post to     yr Assured friend

Mr James Mewburne
