Hon[ou]r[e]d Sir

The Rheumatisn which has been flying about me for sometime has at last swelled my right hand, so that I employ Cath Peart to write this for me. As the pain is over I hope I may get to Wallington on Monday – but if not then, I will come as soon after as I possibly can – I will take Care to settle with Mr Liddell and get an Acco[un]t of the Cellars.

I have wrote to Mr Wilson for a Definitive Answer before  this day Se’[ven]night. I am etc    HR

P.S. Please to let me know whether I am to pay Mr Liddell his Wages at the rate of £31 10s 0d or £50 since Mr Robson’s Death
