Mr Ward

      Pray ord[er] your Attourney to proceed against Mr Place without Delay, and when you see Mr Place pray acquaint him that in case he move it into the Chancery he shall certainly find me there, and if he [cast] there he may move it into the house of Lords, For I’ll follow him there likewise, and make it cost him more 20 times over than his Dam’s worth, this is onely a flourish from him, for you’ll Find he’ll soon pay the money after he’s served with a writ, For tis a foolery to contest it seeing I have it under his own hand

      I question not but by your management I shall gett my money of Nelson, I perceive you lett Mr Jones have your Calfe so you may depend upon one next year Pray Receive the money of Johnson what he sold my horse for 

      I am your Ass[ure]d friend
