      I have ordered Mr Pearson to receive the Keswick & Thornthwaite Rents, & what fines are due or in your hands.  What you have or due now therefore before the 28 Inst. I desire may on or before that day be paid to him, as I given him directions to bring the money to Aldstone the 1 Octr. next or the 30 Inst. both which days I shall be in the Country.  You will order the Courts as it suits your own Convenience for neither Mr Boag or I can attend them, but pray send us the proceedings thereof with the Coppy of the Suit Rolls, & we must have them for the time that is past

      I am Sir Yours etc

      Nichs. Walton
