A Field or Survey Book is also sent therewith, which shews the Quantity of Ground contained in each Field or parcel of Ground belonging to Greenwich Hospital, and we beg leave to recommend, that the Plans and Field Book, may be deposited, with the Copy of the Award lately transmitted to you, in the Record Room, as collectively, they will distinctly shew the Hospital’s Property in Hexhamshire. The House and Garth belonging to Thomas Leach and the Allotment of Thomas Roddam are Copyhold. It will be proper to let this Letter remain with the Plans. We are

      Sir Your most obedt Servts
