Sr.   There is I think upwards of £600 due from you for Rent to last Mart[inma]s when all your demands are deducted, I am ordered by Mr Blackett to acquaint that he has at present great Occasion for Money & therefore desires you’l pay me £400 to remit him in a Fortnights time, I was with Mr Major Allgood about 8 days ago who then told me your Rents were the best paid of any in the Country & that he was sure you did not then want £50 amongst all your Tenants, but if it should be otherwise you know Mr Blacketts Rent should not depend upon it, I desire your answer & am etc your most humble servant    J.R.
