Scope and Content

Samuel Wood (Trevalyn) to Sir John Trevor (Little St Bartholomew's, London): estate business regarding various tenants and their leases, payments of rent, etc.; 'you wrote of sowing fir seeds you sent down; Mr Marshall your tenant will tell you that he sowed some in his garden which is far fitter for them than any ground here, the rest shall, God willing, be sowed here as soon as the ground is fitted and the wet weather amended. I conceive you will have a stable made fit for your horses here and here is none that hath any planks fit for horses to stand on, but I am resolved to get the little stable planked with such planks as we can get about the house to serve for the this turn only and that as speedily as I can. I presume you will most part reside and lie at Plas Teg where my lady is; if you mean to lodge here at any time in the new hall you had need to get those beds (which are at the Lodge (they say) left as heirlooms or bequests for you) but they are but mean ones in my eye…'; a dispute over church seats has gone quiet for the time being and the wardens are sitting in the ones in question; his wife's precarious state of health.
