James  									Novr. 28

      I perceive by yrs that Mr Ridleys have signed the Count’r part and that Mr Wilkinson & yr Selfe are witnesse to it which is very well, You need not go to Fallowfield till nigh Xtmas, and if the weather then be very poor take Jacob and other 2 workmen and go to Warksburn and the Bailiff Dodd will shew you two Veins of Lead, he has had 2 Workmen there a day or two and he says they told him twer very hopefull, and would have taken a Tack of it , but I knew they were not able to spend so much money, so would not lett them it.  Be sure when you come to town go to Mr Fenwick he has certainly <perusd this book> long before this, his own Acct. which you can shew him will Satisfy any Reasonable man, when you pay Mr Stephenson for the 2 hheads of wine you must be sure to tell him that I hope he’ll take no more of me than he does of the Vintners in Newcastle, and when you do pay him inclose me his Rect. for the 2 hheads.  Acqt. Mr Featherstone & Reay that I designe to make a Pay at Fallowfield at Xtmas and that they fail not to have their moneys ready att that time, that with Will[imonts]wike Rents will do much more than discharge the Pay.  Am glad to hear you are likely to get Substantial Ten’ts for Seaton Lands, I long to hear that you have agreed with them, Know of Maria if Mr Wilkinson and Mr Brummell Rec’d Each of them a Roll of Brawn from me, I expect it would be with them on Fryday.  Always write a line per Saturday nights post      Yr Assur’d friend
