Scope and Content

Roger Kenrick to Sir John Trevor (Cannon Row, Westminster): they have had a good harvest and most of the tithes are also in but will probably not yield much when sold; people are delaying selling in the hope prices will rise; has hay in several tenants' barns and in ricks; the sainfoin is growing very feebly and he does not have high expectations of it as the germination rate is far below other crops so he does not recommend sowing any more until they see whether it can be made to be of any profit; Richard Boult has gone to Ireland and has had to mortgage a field to pay his debts most of which were run up on good ale; Daniel Roberts' widow wants to give up her holding as she can live elsewhere more cheaply in a property of Sir John Bulett's [?Bellott's].
