Dates : 30 March 1793

discussing miscellaneous estate business: getting in rents at Lismore and Youghal, the depredations committed by William Gumbleton on the deer park at Lismore, the inn and canal, the road over the mountains and a transaction with Lady Massereene [over her Derbyshire estate].

'... I waited upon Lady Massereene on Saturday morning and she appointed Monday to execute the conveyances mentioned in the letter you sent unsealed. Her ladyship desired to have both English witnesses, and as my brother, John, was in Dublin on his way to Cork I took him with me on Monday morning. After attesting the execution, I left all the deeds with her, which she expected to have an opportunity of sending to England in a few weeks. There was no lease for a year to [sic] Lord George Henry Cavendish's conveyance of the fee farm rent, and I suppose it was not necessary. ...'
