To Sr. Wr. Calverly Bart. Newcastle the 15 April 1733 Hon[ou]rd Sr. Yesterday Mr. Allgood delivered me the Inclos’d to send to you or Mr. Wilson, being the Trustees answer to Mr Blacketts bill, as the same he says was fixed & settled by Mr Wilson & Mr Fenwick at York with his own bill & Mr. Blacketts answer drawn to correspond there with, & desired me to acquaint you that the same had been sent sooner, but that he was desirous to have first the other Trustees Approbac.on thereof. Hall, who farms the Northside of Harwood is broke, but the rent is secured, & the farm let for Year to one of the same name, a substantiall tenant who would take it for any Term of years, & also the other <side of> & Harwood House, if they were at Liberty. On Thursday last I was among the Tenants, for the first time of their Martinmas Rents, & got no more than £157 among them all, if the times do not amend fast, a year or two will break all the weak ones, of which there are too many in Wallington Lords[hi]p. I do not know what to do with Anderson the miller he either cannot or will not pay his Rent, in which he is three half years behind, occasioned as he says by no care being had to the Rights of the Mill, the truth is, half of those who are bound to the mill never come at her, nor will be made to do it, till forced by a Court or some other proceeding. I am etc JR.
