Obadiah Bourne at Ash (bourne?) to his brothers at Dr (Henry) Bourne's at Spital, near Chesterfield - I desire your advice and assistance in the future management of all my affairs - I am to settle £200 upon the good lady I hope shortly to be happy in and I cannot do so without your being bound with me - when I leave the country I shall have money in pocket from the livings, besides what there will be from Asher (Ashover) and the Edges, being worth £300 for my part, there will be £100 left to pay off what the Doctor stands bound for - the goods will answer what is paid for them but I desire that, if I give £70 for them, I may have them all together as in the inventory - you may give me the gowns and cassocks into the bargain - let us divide the rest between us as we do the payment of the debts - desire Brother Bourne to confer with Mr Cowley about the slating of the great barn and kitchen - he may consult Bunting but I think Kirk's scheme for removing the yellow chamber stairs and making the new stairs go out of the hall will be much the best - I shall look on Mary as my servant from the time I left Ashover and will allow her 2/6d a week board wages - Cousin Wright said the blankets ought to be sent to the walk mill. 31 Aug. REF: D1101 M/F 24
