Sr Thomas,

Inclosed is a Lettr to Mr Morris, which I desire you’ll p’ruse, Seal & inclose it by yr Servt. I must own I did wonder you should refuse the proposal made you, for you may consider that this year may prove a wet season & then you can sow but very little  & besides it will be hard for you so late to procure <Pairers> that could pair a considerable quantity, so now you have yr own time to pair & sow yearly what you please during his life wch <. ….> so I think this bargain is preferable by much to what you were willing to give. I remain Sr yr real friend

Sr Thomas Tanckred Bart
undated but clearly related to the previous letter to Morris
