I said its lyable to Sewers Rates Easiely taxed and noe houses to Repaire But I understand not well the Nature of it. Its a thing of vallue and not to be slighted.
Therefore if you cannot goe I would have you immediately of Fryday before day send out a [? shot] to goe to the Post Master of Boston and desire to know if he sent the letters to Wm. Pendock of Dunington, that I have writ and franked to him last 3 weekes. 3 in number. If not let your man carry them to Mr. Pendock who I would have see all Mr. Farmers Letters and goe over againe and see what I now write and tell me then his objections. And Answer these Queryes.
Whether the outbanke when cleansed and made goode will not be supported by 12 li a year.
Whether the tenants repaire not everything else.
Alsoe whether any danger of wanting tenants or of Rents sinking And if not whether to be raised to 500 li per annum.
Lastly the Nature of the lands and whether any part wett whether it has any High Country or by the fenside and if any parte of it wett and whether it bear good grasse or Brackin Thistles Bryars or what.
Let your man read all this exactly to him and order the Rentall to be sent me by him from Bourne next post.

Commercial Activities  1ANC9  [n.d.]

XXV, 351). A number of these papers seem to have been concerned with executorship and bankruptcy trusts with which Sir Gilbert and his son Henry were concerned as trustees or creditors. There were also a number of case papers which appeared to be commercial in origin.

a. William Vesey to Sir Gilbert Heathcote. New York. May 19th 1716. He has delivered Sir Gilbert's messages to his brother (? Caleb) who is reducing his expenses. He sends information about Caleb's activity in the government of New York; he has placed his nominee in a customs house place but the commissioners have supplanted him with a relative of Lord Bolingbroke's. He (Vesey) hopes the Col. Heathcote will be appointed governor as he is extremely beloved and would in two or three years make his fortune.; Sir Gilbert has sufficient influence to achieve this. "the good services you have done the Crown and your interest with the King and the ministry and the Rt. Hon. Gen. Stanhope gives your honour a fair prospect of obtaining that post for him."
d. James de Lancy to John Heathcote. New York June 21st 1731. The Surveyor General of the Northern District has just died and he asks for his interest and Sir Gilbert's to get the place. "I propose to lay out thousand guineas to that end and have accordingly sent a note of £400 to Sir Gilbert.... you will know how to apply the money properly."

s. James de Lancy to Sir John. New York Dec. 9th 1734.
His predecessor as Chief Justice, Mr. Morris, encouraged seditious practices:... "have had their inscriptions of Liberty and Law fixed up and carried about. Sir Robert very well knows the evil tendency of such things and if he be rightly informed of the measures taken here so resembling those in England I can make no question but that he will discountenance the man who in imitation of his brethren the Craftsmen has introduced that practice here."
u.v James de Lancy to Sir John. New York July 7th 1735. He has been on circuit and unable to write before; thanks Sir John for his efforts and hopes to hear of the outcome of the affair soon.
y. James de Lancy to Sir John. New York. Dec. 6th 1736.
