TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to E J Howard, Nocton Rise, Lincoln
Date12 November 1888
DescriptionAcknowledges receipt of Howard's letter of 10 November enclosing vouchers for 32 pounds, 17 shillings and three and a half pence spent on improvements to the Mablethorpe estate, which has been brought before the Treasurer. They cannot provide any return of rent as their accounts have just balanced for the last twelve months, and the Treasurer has found a large negative balance. Rix notes that Howard knows more than they do about the news of the sale of the property.

They send their sympathy for the unprofitable last season, and hopes that he has secured possession of the field which had been sublet and caused some difficulty.
