To Mr Isaac Hunter at Dukesfield                                    Newcastle 7th January 1762 [1763]

Sir/ Jos & John Angus Junr have been with me today & repent they did not take the Farm as I offered it to them on the 27th Nov last. I do not know where you have let it/ as was agreed when you were here last/ to Walton; if you have I hope you have done it pursuant to my Lre on the 10 Decr. John Angus Junr says his Father declares he will keep the Farm till Mayday 1764, wch to be sure is very strange Language after he has so earnestly requested to be clear of the farm at Mayday next, but his view undoubtedly is to force us to let it to his sons. Indeed if you have not let it to the other I sh[oul]d have no objections to their having it as being old Tenants & as they will now give the terms I offered it to them at/ as mentioned in my Lre of the 27th Nov/ for 15 yrs certain, but if you sho[uld] let it to them pray to serve my directions of the 10 Decr that we may not have any uncertainties in this matter hereafter.

I am etc           HR
