Mr Walt Blacket July 9 . 1732 I have reason to think myself very ill used. While you & Mr Algood were treating with me for my 9th lot & you both assured me no oar should be carried off the premises without my knowledg , as did Mr Richmond again at Newc. Your men were then actually carrying away the oar, as I can prove by several persons of undoubted credit & Mr Peart can’t deny it. I can’t prevail [phrase apparently in shorthand: O vs 2 .. d is ..

Whether this is done without or with your privity the injury is the same to me, [superscripted phrase apparently in shorthand: e v is y I …. >7/> 7 v vs] reparation for that, & for all the oar taken up in Stanhop Park & other places within Sanderson’s Lease, shall be progressed by all legal means.

Apparently two drafts of the same ultimate letter, in Bishop Chandler’s hand. The first includes two phrases apparently in some form of shorthand. Second draft has much shorthand, not all of which is transcribed, with main sections indicated with ‘….’.
