Sir      I received your Letter acquainting me of the Meeting at Cornhill on Thursday first in order to come to an amicable Agreement concerning the Bill now before the house of Comons for Regulating the Fishing in the River Tweed.  I cannot possibly attend it, Nor can I see that any further advances can be made on our Side for friendships sake than were made at the last Meeting at Cornhill.

   I shall be very glad to receive from you, as soon after the Meeting as you can, an account of what passes at it.                    I am etc    HR
