23 Jan. 71

My dear McLean

I have seen Whitaker about Col. Browne's land and he will go into the business with you when you come up -

I named you as my referee in a former letter as you know all about the property and I am willing to give what rent you think fair not exceeding £300 p.a. for 21 years - If for a shorter term say 200£ p. a. -

The lease is now expired and the last 1/2 years rent has been paid and I want a new lease or at least a definite answer yesor no. Nobody would give as much as I am doing for it -

Yours very truly
Joseph Rhodes

N.B. I can scarcely write from a dreadful pain in the head and vertigo which came on suddenly this morning, from the hot sun I fear- Do what you can for me in this matter and you will much oblige - A new lease and long term is my object-
