I received the note today quite safe. Mr. [Lunn?] has
just got some snuff from town which he likes. Mr. Hall
is here and has been out hunting but his hounds are not
come down yet. I do not know how you get the
trousers to fit, but I will send you down a pattern for
some that I particulary wish. The quantity of wheat
ground in one hour by your watch is 50 ton therefore
that is 16 Cwt 4 Qrs I think the way that it is

first the answer will be what you require. Excuse any
bad writing as I have now got a new style of holding
my pen at first it is awkward but soon I shall be an
excellent writer
