To John Watson Esqr.


      The Rents which are Undermentioned are containd in the Rentall Returnd by youy to the Treasury, of which No return of Arrears were made, so that we do not in the least dispute, but during your Receivership they were regularly paid. Since We have been Concerned the payment of them have been disputed so that without bringing Actions as the Law directs those Rents cannot be recover’d. What I have therefore (by direction of our Board) to desire is that you wou’d be pleased to Examine how and in what Manner those Rents have been received by you, and that you wou’d inform me thereof as in the probability that may put an End to any Suits which may otherwise be Commenced on that Acct.   Your Speedy Ansr. Hereto will much Oblige him who is for Mr Boag & Self

      Sir Yours &c   Nicho. Walton
