Honest Mr Ward                						March 18

      I perceive by yrs that you design for York Shortly, I shall take it very ill if you do not call at Newby Either in yr going or Returning,  After you have spoke to Mr <Place> if he will not pay you, you must ordr an Attorney to proceed against him and that I’m sure will put him to more charge, so he had much bett’r pay it with fair means, I cannot imagine what he can Say or Alledge in this business.

      Am very sorry that Vane continues so very ill, you do not write whether his Son be married or not, I hope his sickness will not break the match 

      I have a very good <Carbine> at yr Service, I believe the militia for this County & yrs will not be up in our time, unless it be to get the <muster> master money, I am willing Every year that the Militia is raised that you shall have a Calfe, when you come to Newby shall discourse further of it                             I am in haste yr Assured friend & Servt

Mr Jno. Ward att Dinsdale
