Mr Stephenson     							8ber 16

      I soon as I got yr Iron to Newby I ordered it to be Weighed as I do all goods that I buy by Weight and I found it wanted nigh two stone, So I ordered the Smith not to make use of any of it, but rather to buy a barr at Ripon till you come to see it Weighed, So I desire you’ll not fail to be here on Monday to see it Weighed, & shall pay you for it,   I am yr Assur’d friend

Mr Jno. Stephenson, Merct. In Yorke
