Beaumont by having them valued, nor for what Purpose it will be, after the Directions which have been given, I do not find that any discressionary Power is lodged with me, to act otherwise: So, in Case the present Tenants should give more Rent, of Course the Occupiers must pay more for their Tithes. I am going to the North tomorrow on Business & shall not return till the 4th. July. I am &c. -J.E.B.
