      Beneath you have a copy of Jacob Peart’s Letr and be sure you be a witness and See all things done accordingly as I write, if you be not in town when this comes to Maria’s hand have order’d her to hire a messenger on purpose to go with this Letr to Seaton, this day proves  so bad a day, that I hope Jacob cannot Reach Newcastle till it be very late, and in case you gott my Last Letr wch I wish you did I hope you stay’d in Town all night, and carry’d Jacob with you to Seaton on Sunday, and gett these writings Executed on Monday, there is a blank left both in the Lease and Counterpart, do you fill it up with one and twenty years and a note under their hands will be sufficient  In case they throw up the old works , or do not think it convenient to work them, that I may have liberty, for I may get some small matter by them when they must certainly loose, being they pay me a fifth out of them   I am in haste yr assur’d friend
