TitleLetter from William Wenman, Panton, Lincolnshire to [Edward] Harley [Auditor of the Imprest], Lincoln's Inn, London; 19 Feb. 1713/14. Imperfect
Date19 February 1714
Extent2 ff
Content DescriptionSends details of Mr Gace's collections and a list of his outgoings, from which an account of the estate can be made as the Lord Treasurer [1st Earl of Oxford] wanted; explains that, Mr Dixon can write to the Yorkshire stewards for any other information, or if necessary he [Wenman] can go to Yorkshire.

Believes it is worth Lord Harley spending £1000 on South Kyme, which is under water, as it will advance the estate more that £1000 per annum, and is sure that he will be allowed to do this and if the duke agrees, Wenman will come back to Lincolnshire; will ensure that the tenants continue to pay their rents; mentions he will see Gace tomorrow; discusses plans to encourage the tenants to pay up their rents; will return to Nottinghamshire on Monday; thinks that Gace's accounts can soon be completed.
