TitleLetter from John Barkley, London to [Henrietta Harley] Countess of Oxford; 5 May 1752
Date5 May 1752
Extent2 ff
Content DescriptionReceived the countess's orders to enquire into Mr Child's mortgage; from Mr Wilcock finds that the money was offered to Mr Child on 31 January and it 'lay dead' in his hands until April because of Lady Delaval; it was from this time that the mortgage deeds were dated which was why his late father wrote to the countess that the interest would not commence till the date of the mortgage deed, 22 April; Lady Delaval only paid interest up until Lady Day and Mr Child mentioned to his father that it would be reasonable to charge interest from Lady Day, but his father forgot to mention this through sickness; Mr Child therefore went ahead and charged it from Lady Day; sent yesterday by the 'Mansfield Carrier' the counterpart to Mr Gomms lease to the countess, which requires thorough repairs to the house and gardens.
