Dear Sir Edward

      As all or most of the Title Deeds relating to the Estate at Winlaton which you have sold to Mr. Simpson are in the Hands of Sir Walter Blackett, and as Sir Walter, Sir Thomas Wentworth & others are interested in those Deeds, but it is necessary That Mr. Simpson should have a Deed of Covenant for the Production of them as there shall be Occasion; I made the inclosed Draft as appearing to me a proper One for all Parties interested; and having so done I sent it to Mr. Wilson of this Town for his Perusal & Approbation on the part of Sir Tho[ma]s Wentworth; He has returned it to me, and says he apprehends Sir Thomas will expect the Approbation of Mr. Phipps of Lincolns Inn; You will therefore be pleased to lay the inclosed Draft before Mr. Phipps immediately, and desire He will give it all possible Dispatch, and when he hath settled it to his likeing, beg of him to write to Sir Tho[ma]s Wentworth & acquaint him That He hath so done; and you will be pleased to return the Draft to me as soon as Mr. Phipps hath settled it, in order to my making the addition of the Schedule to it which will be a long one. You should also acquaint Sir Walter Blackett with the Purport of this Letter & the Inclosed Draft. Time wastes apace & the 12th of May will be upon us soon, Therefore Expedition is absolutely requisite. I am, Dear Sir,

      your most faithful & obed[ien]t. Serv[an]t

      Chr. Fawcett
