To William Robson                                                      Newcas[tle]        14th Febry     1764

At Wallington

Sir  I am sorry to hear of George Pringle’s Death. I am afraid Sir Walter will be a Sufferer by him, notwithstanding you have so good an acco[un]t of his stock. You have certainly done right in dispatching Mr Liddel & Mr Laidler to secure all that can be come at. You know he has paid no Rent & therefore owes £225 for a year and a halfs’ Rent due Martin[mas] last. As to the half year’s Rent due next Mayday, the Way going Crop if he has sown any thing, will I hope pay that at least. I am glad you are better; I wish you perfect Health; but you won’t for sometime be well enough to undertake a Journey to Berwick, therefore pray make yourself as easy as possible in the mean time. I am he                                                             H R
