I have received your Letter inclosing me Mr Walter Trevelyans bill on you for Sixty two pounds ten Shillings for his <.> rent charge on Hawick with your Indorsement of the same to me & therefore have given you Credit for that sum and I have at last received of Mr Greenwell three pounds twelve Shillings for Roger Crosby’s receipt which I have also given you Credit for.

I had a Letter last post from Mr Wilson by which I find he is dissatisfied either with his purchase or with me for pressing to know what is doing about the Conveyances or with the Mortgagee for calling for his Money. He says, “after putting himself so much in other peoples power no one can imagine he should be averse to having a Conveyance at a distance of 10 Months or thereabouts. The necessary Evidences of title are not produced. Mr Child ’tis now said is backward” (I desire to know the meaning of this) he goes on “I was told no part of £14000 would be wanted. I have Letters from Mr Darwin and you to that purpose; It is now called for (a moiety I mean) & imediate payment required. had I had Customary Notice I would have provided for the payment for thank God I do not want resources.” I am etc    HR
