To Wm Corbett.                             					Rav Castle   January 11 1742


       In Obedience to the Boards Commands of the 22d December last we have Treated with Mr Teasdale in regard to the Damage he sustained by the Loss of his Home and have offered him Five Guineas as a Satisfaction, which we have fixed but Agree to accept of Six Guineas.  This we did not think proper to Gamble with not only as we apprehend what we offered was at or about the Vallue but are in a Strict enquiry into the right of the Claim, we are in Some doubt whether the Law will give the Tenants damages for accidents in the out Grounds.  Mr Simpson who is the Court keeper for that Manr we have wrote to on this head to make a State of the Law that if it be necessary we may take an opinion thereon before anything further is done.

               Sir Yours etc
