Is sorry not to have replied sooner to Craighall's letter. He will be happy to keep Craighall's money, and will offer him the lairds of Inchmartin, Dun, and Fullerton as cautioners.
He has not forgotten what he owes to Craighall and his brother, and hopes to be at Meigle in ten days' time to pay him.
He has been trying various friends to raise money in order to satisfy Craighall, but they want to wait until the Sheriff Clerk of Forfar has been approached to see what he will do for his share. If he could sell some of his land, Craighall would be paid in full.
He understands that Craighall has met with Edzell, Dun and Fullerton over the business Craighall has with Fullerton. Gray will be ready to pay the money he owes Craighall at any time and place Craighall may specify.
He has spoken several times to Fullerton since he and Craighall parted, and he is in hopes that Craighall will shortly be satisfied.
He has met Fullerton who intends to see Craighall again. Edzell would like to do so too, and would arrange to be available at any convenient time after the end of the current week. (This letter carries a list of crop receipts, possibly Craighall's).
He has received Craighall's letter in which Craighall says that Fullerton intends to do nothing about raising the money which he owes Craighall, and for which Edzell, Dun, and Gray are cautioners. Dun is with Gray at the moment, and has the money that he owes Craighall. Gray hopes that Edzell will also shortly pay up.
Can Craighall please send him by the bearer one of the most recent discharges he has had from the Bishop of Dunkeld for the teinds of Hallyards. He promises to return it before Friday night.
He is in need of money, and hopes that Craighall can send him 35 pounds owed to both of them by tenants. Craighall's share is 20 pounds, so that if Rattray can have the balance, it would be a help. Also if Craighall can spare 50 of the 300 merks he owes Rattray that would be useful; "I desyr your ansuer schortlie."
