To Mr William Robson at Newcas[tle] 4 Sept 1764 Wallington Sir I am glad that Thomas Thompson’s stock is worth so much; but as to what he owes Sir W[alte]r separately I cannot say, having never kept the Acco[un]t between them : for you know William Cook is answerable for the whole. All I can tell you is that they owe jointly £84 due May d[a]y last; and that only half a years Landtax is to be allowed out of it (at £1.9s.5d a half year). As to the Adminis[tratio]n to his Effects you need have nothing to do with that; for the farm will of course be intirely W[ilia]m Cook’s : unless they have executed a deed to prevent survivorship, which is not likely. As to Dixon’s half of Fenwick hall farm I suppose his son and James Dodds will settle it between them; if not, Dodds will be intitled to the whole farm, unless the same sort of deed has been executed between Lessees also. I am etc H R P.S. The Law directs you to pay T. Thompson’s balance into the hands of the sheriff undersherif. or constable.
