Saunderson the fine may be compounded for a small Matter, he writes me  likewise that Mr Stockdale compounded a fine upon Sr Wm Robinson’s Estate for Easy Tearmes, pray know of Sir Wm Robinson what matter was taken in his Affairs, and I desire you’ll give yr Selfe the Trouble to take the same with mine   I perceive Mr Francis Taylor was Sir William’s Attorney, and he employed Mr Nich. Hall to sue out the Recovery and that the Fine was upon very Easy Terms,  pray do me the favour to <Intoe’s with> Col Sanderson in mitigating the Fine, and also Acqt him that the <Ledell> Lordship or Manners are of very little value,  Mr Hall and Mr Taylor you may see them any day in Westminster Hall, and they will inform you more upon this Acct., However I have Inclosed you Will Thomsons Lettr.
