	I will be much obliged to you for informing me, whether or not, any thing was mentioned in the Bill for the Division of our Common, relating to the Corn tithes, belonging the Curacy of Allendale.  I have lost my own Mare lately, and have not yet got another, by wch means I was detained from attending at the Black Bull on Tuesday last.

	I will be much obliged to you, besides payment, if you’l get me the Money due for the Corf  Rods which were sent to the Corver last Summer if you think is time.  I neither know the man’s name , or place of abode; but your Woodman Robson, knows bothe.  There was 63 Bunches, at 10d, I believe; but he can inform you exactly.  Perhaps the money may be gotten by May.  I am Sir Your very hble Srt
