Abstract:

The first volume is Cator's 1792 Oct. 18 response to a complaint by Thrale's widow Hester Lynch Piozzi and her second husband Gabriele Mario Piozzi, in which they alleged that he had provided them with incomplete and inaccurate information concerning the estate. In the response, Cator provides a detailed narrative of his handling of the Thrale estate, including transcripts of a release from the Piozzis to Cator dated 1787 May 3 (pp. 62-67) and a related schedule of accounts (pp. 91-99). It is signed by Cator on p. 90, by witness Edward Montagu (p. 1), and by James Trower (transcriber?) (p. 90).

The second volume is Cator's 1793 Nov. 21 response (with fellow executor Jeremiah Crutchley) to a complaint from Henry Thrale's youngest daughter Cecilia (later Cecilia Mostyn), then a minor, filed by her advisor Bertie Greatheed. In the response, Cator expands on his narrative of his handling of the Thrale estate, including transcripts of schedule of accounts through 1785 Sept. (pp. 130-169), June 1787 (pp. 170-185), 1792 July (pp. 186-206), 1793 Mar. (pp. 206-212), and 1793 Aug. (pp. 213-237). It is signed by Cator and Crutchley on p. 129, by witness John Ord (p. 1), and by James Trower (transcriber?) (p. 129). A payment from the estate to "Gabriel Piozzi, music master" is listed on p. 142.
