Mr Ward,

      You need not give yrselfe any further trouble to discourse Mr Plaice but immediately ord Mr Thomas Maynard of Yarm who I hear a very good Charactr of to <see> out a plant and prosecute the matter according as you give him Directions for I will never refer my Just Right to any body but so a Judge & Jury at the Assizes. So I shall give my selfe no further trouble upon this acct.

      I perceive the Water Wheel at Sockburne is decayd so you may cut down that oak which is in the Greenbank when the sap goes, wch will be about the second week in May. I have severall fine Whye to Calve & will let you know as Soon as the last of them has Calv’d, be sure you slip no opportunity in making a good End with Melson. I am yr assured friend 


Mr Jno Ward at Dinsdale
