And also that you would be so good as let me know whether any thing is yet done about settling the Disputes concerning the part of Lucker Common left to be divided among the freeholders And also whether the disputes about the Tithe of Lucker Common are in any way of being adjusted; or if not, what you would advise to be further done towards bringing these matters to a proper Conclusion; which Sir Walter is very desirous of & which you are the best qualified for obtaining for him of any body I know.
