Clavering & his friends had a meeting at Durham on Friday, but what resolution they then came to, I cannot learn, further than that they are to have another meeting in 10 or 14 days in wch time its believed he intends to try what further progress he can make, & then determine whether to give up the Contest or otherwise.

Mr Darwin has wrote for Mr Pool’s & Mr Welbrahams opinions (about Kirkheaton) to be sent up by your Orders, I have by this post sent part of them under 3 covers directed to you & the rest are sent under 4 covers directed to Mr Darwin. I hope a very little time will restore you your natural rest, as its most probably the opeates given during your illness that has occasioned the want of it. I am etc    JR
