      I perceive at your Returne you mett with Nelson’s mother, and that her son will be at Allerton on St George’s day, so pray make what End you please with him for the Arrears of Rent And shall be Content with it, for you had better take something than loose all, tho I believe if I would be at some charge I might Recover the whole Rent, for you can prove he was in the possession of the farm, and I can swear he never paid me any Rent so I hope by Threatening you may gett more of it.

      My Wife gives you her thanks for your kind pr[e]sent, it was a very good Salmon & right in Season, Should be very glad to hear that Mr. Vane was Married, for he has been said to be Married for some time time [sic], pray acq’t me at your own Leasure how his father Recovers
