Am oblig’d to you for the favour of yur lettr and shall lend you my Writings of the Lordsp of Newby on Monday next. I desire you’ll take care that such security may be drawn as will satisfy my Lady. Tis a shame that above £300 a year should be given for the security of a £1000 so I think one part of the Lordship mortgagd for that sum is sufficient. However I refer that & what concerns this affair to yr management and what trouble you shall be at you shall be gratfy’dto yr own satisfaction. I am yr obliged humble servt

Thos Adams Esqr Yorke

I had a lettr yesterday from Mr Pemberston. He writes me he had desired Dr Ward to procure the £500 if it lay in his power. I could easily have it at Newcastle but will <commence> two years use [replacing ‘interest’ struck out] in going thither & returning, besides I do not love journeys. Pray give my most humble service to Dr Ward. I should judge that a Rent charge of £100 a year out of Newby Lordship is as much as they can desire for the security of £1000
