Sir                               If you think the sums fixed in my last Letter, as acknowledgement for the tithe of the Allotments of Dotland Comon will not be satisfactory to the proprietors; because they are not exactly according to the no. of acres that each of them have; you may proportion them nearer but Sir Walter ordered that 5s.od should be the highest sum and I thought there was no occasion to descend to farthings in a thing of this nature and therefore set a penny as the lowest. Inclosed I return you the draught of the article for these acknowledgements & am etc       HR
