Content DescriptionReports that he has been in Caister [Caistor] again with Mr Gace, where they were more successful than they had previously been despite a new 'alarm' from Lord Pelham's 'people' who tried to avoid the payment of the rents and arranged to meet the tenants at Homecastle the same day as Wenman and Gace were to meet with them; however Wenman and Gace still managed to collect quite a sum and have sent it to Harley by the Lincolnshire carrier; it will then be paid to Child; does not think Lord Pelham will have the power to further encroach upon 'our possessions'; mentions that Mr Gace will explain the situation to Mr Dixon when he is next in town; expects to reach Nottinghamshire on the following day when he hopes he can serve Harley.
