In Answer to your Letter about Thos Little’s refusing to pay tithe, it appears to me now, from the particulars you have given me, to be a Matter that deserves Sir Walter’s Consideration, and therefore I desire you will draw up a Case to be laid before Council and that you will therein state, besides the Facts contained in your Letter, whether prior thorns is Tithe free by means of a Modus or how otherwise; whether it is in the same parish as Anick Fell or in any other that Sir Walter has the Tithe of. Whether there is any Township or Village that enjoys a right upon the said Fell, and pays Sir Walter a modus for the Tithe of their Inground; and yet also pays or has ever paid him tithe of Wool and Lamb in kind, on Anick Fell. You mention that you think an Agistment Tithe is due for Little’s Lambs; pray has there ever been such Tithe paid in the Manors of Hexham or Anick grange. I am etc    HR
