To  Mr Isaac Hunter at Dukesfield                                         Newcas.   21st  April 1771

Sir      I desire to know how there happens to be an Arrear of £26 . 5s . 0d due from Jos Angus the Tenant of Woodcroft ; when I desired you to take Care that all that was due from him to Sir Walter Blackett might be secured in time.  while we had power under the Deed of Sale of T Estate to secure it.  I desire your Answer, for I doubt Mr Ward will not easily allow you to distrain if necessary at this time a day for this Arrear; tho you would have had a Certain right to it, if done in reasonable time.                   I am etc    HR
