LETTER: From [?Rice] Gwynne, London to Dr [?Llewelyn] Griffith Kerycklopyd, co. Ang., touching the estate of his uncle Dr Gwyn who died intestate, with the writer's father in law his heir (for whom the writer was acting as agent).
There had been disturbances by the kindred (who had expectations) to the proceedings of the heir and administrator.
The writer desired the recipient to assure the 'nearer and better sort of kindred (Mr Merrick in the first place) that fairness was intended towards them and that they much prejudice themselves by discourtesy and unkind dealings beside the illegal and unjustifiable way of proceedings in forbidding for tenants to pay rent to the heir'.
The Doctor's estate was notoriously known to belong to the jurisdiction of the Prerogative.
The sender had many bonds for several yearly payments for years yet to come from the recipient to Dr Gwyn.
Although they seem absolute the sender would not charge the inventory with them until he heard from the recipient.
