Date14 December 1735

Content DescriptionThanks him for William Pluckrose's lease and counterpart and undertakes to take the lease to Mr York in Cambridge; writes that the tenant Francis Austin has considerable arrears which are not likely to be paid as he is very old and his son is 'not very hopeful'.

Mentions Thomas Eversden whose arrears are also almost a lost cause as his land is badly managed and his wife's second son is due his portion of £200; writes that the crops have been bad and many sheep have died so most of the tenants are behind on their rents; wishes him a Merry Christmas.
