When you have read the inclosed Letter to Mr Duffield I desire you will Seal and Send it him. & Sir Walter desires you will direct Mr Duffield in surveying such part of the Estate as may be the most material to the valuation of it.

When you have an opportunity I wish you would enquire of the Clarks, or other old people, whether Sir Walter got any Share of Whelpington Common upon the division of it (which I suppose was many Years ago) in right of his Estate at Wallington; besides what he got for Cadwell, which you know is called the Intake and for which a rent is paid to the Duke of Northumberland. I am etc    HR
