To Mr John Bell at The house late Mr Ellis’s                          Newcas.  4 March 1770


Sir    As to John Anderson’s claim of 10s a year for the piece of ground sold Mr Douglas, nothing is yet done in it, not having got any direction from Sir Walter about it, it was a very odd Thing in Mr Robson to sell that ground without first settling the Matter with the Tenant, who had it under Lease.  However Anderson is so much in Arrear that he may very well wait until Sir Walter gives some orders about the Allowance.  I have forwarded your Letter to Mr Forster     &  am etc    HR
