Dr Gents

 I saw Mr Leigh at Ormskirk sessions about the repairs at the tenement in Cophul, which I hold under Mrs Peason and shall on Wednesday next go over and take a carpenter with me to give directions about the necessary repairs; I could have had this business done at much less expence to myself under the directions of a friend of mine near Chorley but I understand he is lately dead I have requested Mr Leigh if his other business will admit of it to meet me on the premises And am your most obedt. Servt
