To Sir Wr. Blackett Bt. MP to be left at the Cocoa tree in Pall Mall London 28th December 1761

Hon[ou]rd Sir           

It seems now to be the General opinion that Mr Featherston’s Effects will not be sufficient to pay his Debts. Therefore, as there is at present Enough upon the farm at Kenton to pay you & as in case an Execution  sho[ul]d come ag[ain]st the Goods there you would only get one y[ea]rs rent out of the 4 & ½ y[ea]rs rent due at Martin[ma]s you will please to consider whether or no a Distress sho[ul]d be made?

I wish you many happy years & am etc                 HR
