Mr Ward                             						March 9 1709/10

      I Recd yr Lettr of Complem’ts which you might very well have Spared yr Selfe that trouble, for without any Complem’ts yr Daughters were as welcome at Newby as if they had been at yr own house, my wife and Daughter Blacket give their kind Remembrance to yr Wife & two Daughters and bid me tell you they must have their Company at Newby this Summer. Am very sorry to hear of Mr <Vaines> being so dangerously ill, pray Acqt me at first post how he Recovers , I shall not Abate  Mr Place one farthing of the Agreement we made which you may Acqt him when you see him,    A verball Contract <prov’d> will bind Nelsons heir as well as a Lease und’r hand & seal.   I think the best way will be to bring him to a Composition and I dare say the Attorney his friend will not be against it, seeing the Agreem’t will be prov’d   With my Service to yr Selfe and I am yr Ass’d friend to serve you

Mr Jno. Ward
