You had positive orders to sue John Thwaite Anth Scott & Thomas Jackson with out any delay & Lanc Penny was to be threatened, & to have a fortnight spareance or more, & if he will pay you in a reasonable time we desire he may be forbore, but as for the rest Lett the process goe on against them till they pay their Arrears & costs, we have wrote to Mr Pearson about them.
