	We are also much surprized you shou’d offer any hardship to your under Tennant, by turning him off his Farme, which we will not Suffer you to do on any Terms, as we cannot find that the the poor Man has given him reason to use him so, nor as he had not had proper notice given him it is at your Peril if you disturb him.  we are Your Hble Servts
