       The Tennants of Dilston & Lorbottle have been all sent by which it will be no difficultee to Come at the Value of the Tyths wou’d it not be better to Comperimise the matter therefore,  than to Suffer them to  <neover> after an Expensive Lawsuit but this we Submitt to the Board’s Consideration & are 

       Sir Your most Ob. Servts
