TranscriptArmagh 30th March 1803

My dear Sir
I understand by your letter
of the 25th that you are to allow
McReynolds œ300, & forgive him the three
half years Rent, which in point of fact
is giving him œ356.17.9 and having now
ascertained the exact amount of his debts
I propose to arrange as follows:-
Sum allowed 356.17.9
Deduct servants wages to be pd [paid?] in full 13.3.0
" Poors Rate 1.5.0
" County [Cess?] 2.4.2
" Costs of [Ejectment?] 3.10.0
12s/6 in the Pound on œ432
due to Sunday Creditors
which leaves for McReynolds & his family œ66.15.

It seems that the wife & children
are to go to America and he is to
remain at home with his mother.
A list of the creditors have been
shown to him and he acknowledges
that the debts are all justly due
and I have no doubt the Creditors
will be thankful to get 12/6 in the
pound on their several claims. - Or
we might give the creditors 10s/- instead
of 12s/6p in the pound which would make
the residue œ120 for McReynold & his family.
By this arrangement the years
rent to May would be put down to
the executors as a bad debt and
the half year to yourself.
I mentioned the matter to
Mr Irvine and he saw no objection to it.
McIntyre has got full posession of the land.
I have sent the Albion Co payment
of their account.
Have you any valuation of the
Coach, Carpet, and other things which
you mention, or must I get them
Believe me
Yours very faithfully
W. [William?] Paton

P.S. You have not said anything
about the Laborers Cottages
