Dr Sir	Inclosed I send you Copies of Letters from Messrs Lancaster & Co & my Ans[wer]s thereto as well as Mr Heron’s Lre [Letter] to you on the Subject  I could wish to advise you for the best in this unfortunate business but I am really at a loss what to say as to the matter of Law; Equity certainly is in your favor.  What Mr Williamson and Mr Heron recommend I think a very advisable Measure to be taking should it meet the Approbation of yourself and Mr Skelton, a fair state of the Case may be drawn up by Mr Heron and after being revised by Mr Williamson may be laid upon such eminent Counsel as shall be thought proper.                  I am etc  J.E.B
