NEW YORK, june 5th, 1730. D: Sir

Yours of the 27th of May I have but the one you mention to have Sent before, I never Received, I have twenty times resolved on writting to you before & Since receit of yours but have always by Something or other been hindered, & now am straitned in time but was unwilling to miss this opportunity by M: Alsop

As to Lewis's affair I know nothing about it but what is known to Every body, I forwarded yours to M: Pople & gave cautions as proposed, but had not time to draw your memorandums for a State of the case in form, I wish you would as yet do it your self.

I heartyly wish you joy of your mine at Rochester & that it may Answer your Expectation to the full ours at Waywayands I think has given us Sufficient Encouragement not to neglect it tho the greatest part of the oar be iron yet theres Some Copper in it & the miners Say the more the further down they go, but its a Lottery

John Parker gave me a five pound bill for you about a fourtnight ago at Amboy, the Assembly Sits there & by their address it would Seem they will agree but I hear they are to have grieveances redressed Some of which are Coll Morris & me of the Council Liveing out of the province & me as Surveyor Gen" Liveing out of the province which things I Suppose will be gone into to be redressed, by Complaints against us I am in haste
