He says that by the Act notice must be given to some one of the Comm[issione]rs within a month from Friday last or else Sir W[alte]r will lose all right in the Common so pray go immediately to one of them & deliver him the inclosed form (after you have wrote it over & signed it) or else if you can hear of a better follow it only keep a copy and take somebody to be a witness pray get one two or three of the Acts for I have not yet seen any of them.

I hereby give notice pursuant to the Act of Parliament for the division of Wolsingham Comon that Sir W[alte]r Blackett claims a right of Comon on the said Comon in respect of his Estate at Wolsingham called [left blank] & let to  [left blank] for [left blank] A Year                                                           For S[i]r W[alte]r Blackett     T.M.

To Mr [left blank] one of the Comm[issione]rs for dividing Wolsingham Comon.
