I enclose a cheque for £83:10:6 the balance due to Mr Lunt in settlement
of all A/C up to September 30 1883.
I send all his A/C that you send me as I think this would be the
opportunity to get Lunt to receipt these all in full and then file them and
begin fresh from September 30 last.
I should be glad the A/C, also the memorandum, when you receive them
back, Ill look over again.

I received your letter of the 7th and observe what you say
about horses and cows you are quite right now you can order some linseed
cake from Liverpool provided that the seller s guarantee it to be pure and
to mark it in the A/C by doing so there is some certainty that it is good , as
of course it is likely to be analyzed by the layer, and if guaranteed pure, the
seller could be had up for supplying what is not genuine if found on analysis
not to be pure. I observed Norman & Piggott have not marked pure on
their invoice please instruct them to do so before I settle their accounts. This
must always be attended to, either in the case of linseed or cotton cake.
I am told the waterloo round cake is very good for stock you might
try a small quantity, the objection is that animals get so fond of it they often
do not take to linseed cake well afterwards.
As the grass will be now so much deteriated you must lose no time in
selling some or the 9 of the fat bullocks, for a reasonable price.
Hatton can have what you think is right for the grates in his cottage
I enclosed a cheque for Blackburn £8: 2: 0
I expect to return home tomorrow but you can send me a letter by tomorrow
evenings post if I have not returned by the time the post leaves.
