Chippenham <1>

Thursday Morng

Dear Sir,

There has been nothing paid, as yet, to Mr Fussell <2> for the ground wch you last planted – He has delayed from time to time to bring me in his account of it –

When his son paid me his Rent the other day – it was again mentioned & we agreed that young John Gale <3> should measure the Ground – & then it will be only to calculate the proportion of rent with reference to the amount pr Acre for the Farm –

It cannot be of much amount –

Yr obliged Servt
