Honed Sir

	Mr Ralph Forsters goods were seized Yesterday & a discharge from your Service at the same time delivered him & a Notice to quit the farm & house at Cambo served upon him - the Sherif (Mr Gibson) will proceed according to Law with the Sale etc and I hope Cambo will be cleared of them before you come down.  Robt Allgood has taken a large farm at Whitfield of Mr Ord & your £196 will go no doubt towards stocking it.  5 o’Clock  the Post is just come, and I am much concerned at your Illness.  With regard to Forster, he deserves all the rigour of the Law & I have not wished in the least to mitigate it, since his bad Mind shewed itself, Nor did I send any Message to Mrs Forster about her Interest in the Leasehold; I only, as I said to you in the Postscript submitted to Mr Gibsons Opinion    I am etc  HR
