Yr. Account of Timber markd by Mr Blake has
been laid before Mr. Treasurer who has ordered me to write for
Answer That, considering the Quantity, being near 300 Feet and that
the Trees will be no better for standing longer, it appears as if they
were markd rather for Sale then for such Repairs as are mention'd
in Mr Rudd's Letter; which you will please to remember, I read to
you when last in Town And contains Yr. Request for Leave to
fill two or three Pollards to make some Gate Posts and two
or three Sticks of Timber to repair the Plough & Carts
Mr Treasurer therefore desires you will confine yr. Directions
for marking Timber at this time to those Particulars only
mentiond in that Letter and send an Accts. of such Trees as are
now necessary for that Purpose, that Orders may be given
