  Inclosed is Bell & Cos bill on Glyn & Co for Three hundred pounds: payable 30 days after this date and endorsed to you.  I send you this Bill inpart of the Rents I have received from your Kenton Tenents – for as Mr King is not ready with his rent, tis better I should remit this Sum into your hands than keep it in mine waiting his Motions.  You will please to advise the receipt of the Bill.  Mr Graham is desirous of having his lease  he says he has done a good deal to the farm & intends doing more but is discouraged by the uncertainty of the Tenure form I sent you on 30 Decr 1768, which is Corresponded and to the Lease refered to in the article, is what he requires but I do not doubt to his agreeing to any reasonable variation you think proper
