Sir         Sir Walter has no objection to letting Tho[ma]s Vicars a Lease for 21 years of so many yards of ground, in any proper place in Kilhope as will do for building a house upon for an Alehouse & for the miners etc to lodge in, at the rent of 2 <c> a year. So Mr C. Hunter & you will consider about the place; only first acquaint T Vicars that S[i]r W[alte]r will have it in his power to put a stop to selling ale whenever he pleases under forfeiture of the Lease & that he can only let the ground for the above term in case his own lease from the Bishop shall subsist so long. I am etc         HR
