Mr Smart

	I think you pay on the Hospitalls Accot to the Duke of Somersetts Agent or Bayliff a fee farme Rent for Spindleston annually.  We are advised that unless persons who receive these fee farme Rents Issuing out of the Derwr Estate put in their Claim at the forfeiture, the hospitall need not pay any.  The Directors have ordered us to pay none unless the persons Satisfie us that they have putt in their Claim.  This I thought it would be proper to Signifie to you, because you pay some of these Rents and we have allowed you them but must desire for the future you’ll pay no outgoings till further order Except Tyth Rents & Meduses for Tyth if any there be.  I am for Mr Walton & Selfe Sr   Yours etc

      Hugh Boag
