      By this Post you will receive a Copy of the Rental of the Derwentwater Estates, as the same was delivered to the Lords of the Treasury by the late Receivers.

	I must desire when you see any mistakes or Errors in any part of this Rentall, as no doubt there are such, that you will inform me of the Same, that they may be Sett right.

	The Directors desire to know from you from time to time your Opinion, how farr any of the Rents of the Farms, or of other Parcells of the Estates may be raised, or in any other manner improved.

	They likewise desire to know, what parts of the Estate lie most remote from the Bulk thereof, and which of the Same are most convenient to Sell and will Sell best.

            I am Gentn Your very humble Servt

		Thos Corbett

Mr Ellison                                                                      

	Tho, as you are Joint Receivers in the Com[m]ission, it is proper for me to write to you all three on the general business of the Estate yet the answer of anyone of you, as to your respective Actions, will be Sufficient. 	TC
