Content DescriptionSends Harley a bill for £500; got this money from Deane's parish and hopes to soon send Harley another sum, although some of the tenants are being difficult to convince and may have to use 'prudent severities' if they prevaricate for more than a week; requests that Harley speedily orders Mr Cossen to provide wood for the tenants, many of whom are desperate, otherwise fears he may lose his credit with them; adds that he is going to Chesterfield today and that he has found many mistakes in Mr Bristowe's accounts of the arrears.
