Provanhall School,
Friday [¿]

My Dear Sir

Have you any
young pigs just now.
The one we got from
you in April has done
well. Killed yesterday
and only wanted 6 lb of
being 11 st. was getting
too big for the house we
have for such. If you
have any I will take one.
Although the last
one is not yet paid I
am sure you can trust
me another till I see
you. Tell Master Reston
if he picks as good a one
this time as last he is
entitled to a commission.
Will call on you
shortly. I enter
the University for my
sixth Session on Monday.
Remember me to
Mrs Mather.

Yours trulyWm BrownNr Mather, Provanhall
Let me know if you have
any young one if so will set me
[¿] at once
WB.
