To Mr Allgood					Newcastle 3rd April 1731


      I was very sorry to hear by Mr Dentons Lre, that Mrs Allgood was indispos’d, am glad to find by your Lre of the 28 past, that she is much better, & heartly wish her health.

      I shall take care to pay the Bills you say you have drawn on me,& to order the piece of Plate for Hexham against Mayday.

      My Lre of the 20th Febr[uar]y acquainted you with Doddes & Atkinson the Kenton tenants being much behind, They owe now a years rent due Mart[inma]s last being £110, & the Mayday rent is almost due. I am sorry to say its my opinion their Condition will very likely be worse, but that there is no likelihood of its being better, Marg[are]t Dixon of Fenwick is also a years rent in arrears at Mart[inma]s but I have more hopes of her than the others. I go tomorrow to the mines to see the Bargains let. 

      I am  etc    JR
