Sir Walter Blackett has given me the Copy of the draught you sent him of Mr Wilsons Conveyance deed of Kenton: and I have wrote Mr Wilson about the exception that you think sho[ul]d be inserted in Sir Wrs Covenant against incumbrances – touching the Out rent the fee farm rent & the Leases & also about Sir Walters having a Counterpart. In your Lre to Sir Walter you say the rents & intrest sho[ul]d be settled before the Deeds are executed & therefore I acquaint you that sometime ago Mr Wilson paid me £200 being his proportion from 22 Novr to 27 March last of the half Year’s intrest then due & advanced by Sir Walter for him to the Mortgages of the Estate which I suppose settles all relating to the rents & intrest. as Mr Wilson is Owner of the Estate from 22d Novemr last and is to receive the half Year’s rents due 12th May last. As to proportioning the Out rent & fee farm rent I have mentioned them to Mr Wilson & if there is any further directions to be observed I should be glad to receive them from You before the Deeds come; for I have nobody to confer with on Sir Wrs behalf but yourself about this Conveyance. I am etc    HR
