|Content Description||Sends Mr Pawson's case on the other side; asks that it be given to 'my Lord' for his consideration.|
'John Pawson's Case':
States that an arrear of £40 was paid by the old tenant of Clipston Warren, Robert Spencer, on his entry; also that he spent £100 in building a house and went into debt as a result; mentions that Lord Oxford allowed Spencer to be paid £90 by John Pawson on his entrance; writes that Pawson was lent the money by Sir Thomas Hewett.
Suggests that Pawson's rent may be increased when the money is paid off; adds that Pawson owes the earl for wood sold him by Cossen but that he is financially strapped because of the expenses of moving into the Warren; asks that he be allowed some time to pay the wood account; adds that the earl could let the Warren to someone else at a higher rent because of the improvements made by Spencer.
Date estimated from the 2nd Earl of Oxford's style of address; possibly dated 1724 from other references to John Pawson in this series of letters.
