Content DescriptionReports a meeting with James Langran, to which Mr Nutting could not come; writes that the rent reduction by £8 p.a. was promised to Langran, plus an allowance of £10 for damage to his goods, if Langran would pay £80 of his arrears; however, Langran insisted on £60 of his arrears being waived along with the reduction in rent so no agreement was reached and no money paid.
