To Richard Thomlinson Esqr

	In pursuance of my promise I Send you below the Survey of the Park at Dilston & other parts which on your View I fancie you will think proper to have along with the House.  What I call the Park is I think walled round but is divided into four Inclosures, & the Hall Garden is within the Wall also, but is most of it unconverted to a Garden.  The whole was possessed by Mr Busby except the Park & that you must inquire for by another name, as it is commonly called Tween Towns & is now Farmed by James Thompson & Ptners.

	If there is any other Land about Dilston that you would Chuse to have along with the House, I dare say we Shall think it the Interest of the Hospitall to accommodate you with it.  & I shall be glad of any opportunity of Shewing you that  I am Sr  Your most Humble Servt
