Extract from letter 8/6/1868 from Geo Whitley
The rents were punctually paid last week and I have now got in all Meredith’s accounts which I was going to submit to you before they were allowed, this I fear I cannot now do as they will be too large a bundle, the following however is a summary.

                                                                                                                        …£ 676.7.2.
The amount is large but as to the farm account he has a set off in a large quantity of hay still unsold worth about £250. If you wish to see the bills they shall be forwarded, if you see no objection they must I suppose be allowed. I intend to invest in the funds the exact balance of rents which will be much reduced by the large outlay.

Thatching

            Old Stockton is going on gradually but there are still a many roofs in a deplorable condition.

Extract from letter 25/9/1873 from Geo Whitley

                                                        Thatching

            I found old Stockton at work at Mrs. Blaine’s & he says the straw, which I admit looks rather rotten, was never in better order.
