To Mr Armstrong 			Newcastle 21st Septr 1731				


By your accot it appears you have not received any more Arrea[r]s of Rent left by Mr Mowbray at Mart[in]s 1723 than £29.1s.10¾d, I send you below an accot how the rents then stood, and they will of course be inquired into upon settling your Accot, wch I hope you will have spedily done, I desire you will procure a list of those Arrears fm Mr Mowbray if you have not one by you, in order to see what part thereof can yet be recovered for certainly some part still may, especially of Marts Arrears1723 wch as below amot  to £28 odd, If you prepare such a List against Weardale pay, it may then be enquired into & considered of before Mr Allgood & Mr Mowbray, & such part that appears to be lost when you entered may be reported so, & therefore you rendered blameless for not receiving them, this I think expedient as well for your Mars as your own Intrest, so therefore recommend it to you, I am Yours etc J.R.						  £    s  d
