Honest Will,

The above said is a copy of my last. I fear it miscarried because I have heard nothing from you since the wood monger that I writ you of cannot possibly come up till after sap time. However I would not have you delay to sell as much wood as possibly you can. You may be <..> and I’ll always leave wood enough for my Mills & <Tenants>. Be sure you give me an estimate what you judge the wood at Whiteshields may be worth as also whats left at Chesterwood. Acqt me how many Heiffers I have & shall order to buy some more of them and bring to Newby the latter end of May. I would I hear no often from you so make no more to add fm yr assured friend

Mr Will Lowes at Ridley Hall

Lett me know whether my Bro Mitford did Mr Charleton any service at the sessions, and which way I may be serviceable to him at the Asizes
