To Mr Joseph Pearson


	I Reced. Yours relating the Waists at Keswick , wch I would have answered much sooner but that these Waists were let to another person some time before on much better Terms than the Gentleman you mentioned offered.

	I propose being at Keswick some time next Week I think on Tuesday night & propose receiving the Rents at My Landlord Grave’s on Wednesday the 13th Inst. ag[ain]st which time unless you have orders to the contrary next post pray order all the Ten[ant]s to be ready with their Rents.

	I desire you will have all your Disbursm[en]ts ready made up, with proper Vouchers to each Article. If you can give Mr King Notice I should be glad to see him at Keswick. I shall stay Wednesday & Thursday & am  Yours &c

      Nich. Walton
