To Walter Blackett Esq. 		N Ca Febry 24 1729

Hond Sr, I received your lre of the 19th inclosing one to Mr Allgood who is now here, I am very sorry you should have any trouble with the Bill I sent you on Mr Gold both he and the Drawer are very Sufficient & I doubt not its being punctually paid, but if it should not before the 3d March please to return it, I shall take care to pay your Bill to Kennedy at Sight. I was last week at Wallington collecting those Rents, where I find owing about £100 for Oats bought by Robson, if you please to give me an Order in your next to pay him that sum to discharge those Bills I shall make him Dr that he may be accountable to you for the Disbursmts, there seems to be wanting a Stock of Malt Liquor in your Cellars there, will you have any brewed the next month.

The Gardiner has got for Wallington and this place peaches nectorins, aperecots, plumbs cherries and pears of the Best sorts from the same nursery men that Sr Walter dealt with, the charge he tells me is between 15 & 16 po.ds which if you please I shall pay gim, he wants only 70 hollys two foot high, & those he thinks he can get from <Pontset> sooner & cheper than they can be sent from London, he desires me to mention only a dozn <falets> if you think proper to send them.

I have advice from Mr Cook that he received the Plate the 14. I cannot yet get any money of Mr Ogle he promises £100 in a very little time. I knew no more of his Accot how it stands than what I have from himself & according to that there is due from him about £500 including the last half years Rent.

Your Lre pr last post to Mr Mayr gives a very great pleasure to him, & several other Gentlemen here that have seen it. 	I am	&c 	Jo. Richmond
