	When at Bretton I received Instructions how to act under certain Circumstances and according to the Exigencies of Cases of the different Nature of the respective Claims.  It is most extraordinary there has not one person since the Advertisment of the 3rd Meeting applied to inspect or examine a Claim

	I am very glad to hear the Road from Burtry Ford to Alston and from thence to Burnstones seems now likely to get forward With respect to Mr Beaumont’s Subscription I flatter myself I did no harm - I observe what you say respecting Mr Williamson’s Opinion about the Expences of Litigation I am sorry there should be any - Mr Ord’s Claim or Objection to the boundary will be settled without Litigation as I have the Description as settled by the Accord so that the Boundary will only be to stake out agreeable thereto by the agents on both Sides

	Joseph Watson and Jno Johnson I expect will both attend the Meeting and some intelligent people with them          I am etc

Mr Walton             Farnacres
