Mr Ward

      Am sorry to perceive by yours of poor Fawcets misfortune I hope will only be the loss of one of his fingers for if the Mel had hit upon his whole hand it might have ruined him

I have at present a very fine Whie Calf & If Mr Pepper will send for it you & he must adjust the price

      I have a good Quantity of Lead aforehand If I could sell it & receive the money betwixt this & June Will Walker may Depend upon his sum but that is not positively to be relied on but the half year after he may depend upon it so I Desire you will take care of it

      Inclosd is a Letter which I rec[eive]d last post out of the north which peruse & returne & pray let me know how poor Mr Lampton Does I am

      Your assured freind
