	I received yors with the Tennants names that stood by Sr John’s intrest as likewise those that stood by mine.   tell that Knave James Blacket, that I will most certainly make him an Example, for I expected he would have stood firm to me, above all the rest of Tennants, Sr Jno <hope> knows not well what to doe, I haveing fyled a Bill in Chancery against him, & likewise served him with a Supoena, to answer it.   So I doubt not but in a very short time to have an absolute end of this Bussiness.  Let me know by the first, whither he desired to receive any Rents from the Tennants.   I had a very civill Message from him as he went to York, & he denys he never offered to demand any Rent from the Tennants, nor to destrain any of their Goods for he knew it was against Law.  I hope their will be noe occassion for an Attourny, being I expect an absolute end of this Bussiness in a very short time, Its impossible for Sr Jno to raise soe much mony as the Lordship of Seaton Delavall is worth, Soe shall be forced to keep it my self, I am    yor assured Friend
