They will feel themselves now as a House not divided agin its self.  Mr R submits the inclosed to Mr Bells Correction - is much divided in his Opinion whether it shod state the Withdrawing of the Claim or the Objection first - but thinks it not very material - The Withdrawing the Claim first is more natural, but then the other way is more corresponding with the Terms of the Proposition made by the Objectors.
