Content DescriptionHas received the earl's commands and has arranged the receipt of Ladyday rents to begin at Mansfield on Tuesday 24th, so that by the Wednesday post, the earl can expect a bill for £400, and more the week after that; has also written to Mr Gace by last Saturday's post to arrange his receipt at Newark; does not doubt that the earl will do him justice about the 'villains' he wrote to him about yesterday, as it was due to his service to his lord that 'so wicked an attempt was made upon me'; thinks that perhaps Mr [Samuel] Smith of Woodstreet will advance the earl money on him drawing a bill on him [Wenman] at Mansfield payable on the 25th allowing him for the return.
