								Farnacres 23d July 1792

Mr Sample

       I have read Robert Browns Article which my father has this Day executed. What the Bells can mean I know not but it is plain to me they are bad fellows and we must do as well as we can with them without a Lease. I have also rec[eive]d Robert Farbridges Administration & will give directions for a Lease being prepared but you must endeavour to get some Cash from him as there were Forty Pounds Seven Shillings due 22d Novem[be]r last yet unp[ai]d & half a years Rent due 12 May last Twenty Pounds Three Shillings in all £60.10. In December 1789 you acquainted us you had sold 8 Matts at 8d a piece. We do not find you ever p[ai]d the Money.

       I am Yr H[um]ble Serv[an]t

       Nich Walton Junr
