Jno. Robinson								May 26 1709

      I writ you the 9th of <..> to offer you the Rec[eip]t of my Rents but hearing nothing from you Since concerning the Rents <till> the 19 May ;  I knew you thought the <Rect> of them not worth yr trouble, so have Employed Mr <Brumel> to receive them for me, the last Acct. you sent me after I had lett the Estate to my Brother  You made the Rents in arrear  above 50 odd pounds but you never gave me an Acct. of the Moneys Recd; only you writ me that you had as much moneys in yr hands as would discharge my proportion of the repairing the houses at <Br….> but from that day to this I never heard what Moneys you have disbursed nor what moneys you have in yr hands, so You may judge how capable you are of being a Steward.  I shall  bring the last Acct. with the names of the tenants that you made in Arrear when I come to Newcastle, So I hope they have paid you in their Arrears wch you ought to have given me an acct long before this, Mr Carr will be at Newcastle shortly, So yr Brother Taylor must gett some friend to go with him to him, I writ him two Letrs. upon yr Brothers Acct. but he gave me answer to neither.                                I am yr assured friend  

Mr Jno. Robinson att Bladon   *
