      I rec’d yr Lettr as also I perusd yr Lettr Inclosd from Mr Place so without any more adoe desire Mr Maynard to proceed against him. This last may day there was two years & a halfe due, and tho he would pay me the money in hand provided I would abate him a penny of the whole I would not do it. The note under my hand wch had shewed you, you have the very copy of it which I gave you last year. You see the note obliges him to pay me four guinneas yearly & I very much wonder that Mr Place should make the least scruple in doing of it.

	Would be glad to hear you had made an End of <the whole> business, pray endeavour as soon as conveniently you can. I have 3 of my best Whyes to calve & shall not be unmindful to Reserve you one of the calves

	I am yr assured friend

Mr Ward att Dinsdale by Mr Lambton
