       As there is a Bill now before the House of Commons for the Dividing and Inclosing parts and Stinting the remainder of Hexhamshire and Allendale Common I take the liberty of intimating to you that it will very probably be well taken by Sir Thomas Blackett that you sh[oul]d interest yourself in favor of the Bill and in getting it thro’ the House with every dispatch. The Quantity of Ground the object of Division & Stinting is estimated at 60,000 Acres and Sir Thomas Blackett is Lord of the Manor. I need not mention to you how very essential to your Interest it may be to have Sir Thomas Blackett as a Friend in this County and any attention you may show in the above busyness w[oul]d I sh[oul]d hope not be forgotten by him; and as the Commissioners and Governors of Greenwich Hospital are very considerably interested in this Division I flatter myself you will consider that circumstance as an additional inducement to take a part in favor of the Bill in which I shall have much satisfaction by Mr Brandlings joining you. I am with great regard

       Sir  Your most Odebt  & H[um]ble Serv[an]t


Rowld Burdon Esq
