I have yours enclosing the Bond, but from what Lord Strafford said to me he was not for paying the £264. – for he is at present in a disagreeable dilemma with the Duke of Leeds, respecting the Title of his Estate, his Grace claiming it as a Copyhold & his Lordship said he did not wish to pay the Money until that Matter was settled, but I understood him he would give me up the Rent of the Houses. He should I think in that case repay me all the Rent that has been paid to him as he never received either rent or Interest. The Houses mentioned in your paper, the <Leaps> and those houses round the field. I shall be at home all next week if you <would> wish Mrs. Booths conveyance to be settled.

I am Your Hble. Servt.

T.R.B. -
