Revd Dr Phillpotts Stanhope 

I beg to acknowledge the favor of your Letter of the 12 Inst, and to offer my best thanks for the information it imparts. – I have often been surprised at the <supineness> of the Officers of the Bishops Manor Courts in the slight notice they take of Encroachments upon the rights of the See, at once injurious to the Lessees and ultimately deteriorating the Interests of future Incumbents. – I shall not fail to reiterate my complaints to the Bishop’s Secretary on this fresh aggression of Mr Rippon’s, at Fatherly Hill; but in so doing, you may with confidence rely, that I shall not implicate your name in the representation I shall make. – etc am etc	MM
