Sr.								March 25 1710

      I desire as soon as this comes to hand that immediately you’ll hire a man and a horse to carry this Lett to Fallowfield, for they are now making my Pay and I find by Mewburnes Lett they are likely to make a great mistake; if Mewburne be not at Fallowfield or his father in Laws at <Acomb> ord[er] the Messinger to bring back the Lett.

	Shall know in 1 or so days time whether I can Raise the £1500 which by the <1>st of June is design’d for my Son Kitt - If I cannot shall desire you to speak to Mr. Ord who you know not only promised but told me I might rely of it against that time in case I had Occasion, tho’ to tell you the truth I had much rather have it in Yorkshire if it might be had, I am 

      your assured friend & Servt.

Mr. Thos. Brummell Newcastle
