Content DescriptionForms part of the archival bundle Pl E12/6/9/2.

States that he must check the value of the woods; will agree terms before Christmas when he has an agent in the area. Writes that Mr Wenman has oppressed his tenants in Radmanthorpe [Radmanthwaite] to obtain the tithes, which belong to Lady Oxford, and has taken them in kind. States that if Mr Wenman accounts for what he has taken, he [the writer] will show the produce of the Norton tithes and the problem can be sorted out. Suggests that the issue of the tithes might be dealt with at the same time [as the woods]. Mr West is too busy to decide things. Asks that the recipient looks into the business with Mr Wenman as he [the writer] is prevented from doing so by Wenman's 'perverseness'.
