Dear Sir

	I have made such Progress in the Division Bill, that I shall be ready for you on Friday, but I fear such Objections will be made to the including Catton Town fields that it must be given up, however so far as my Labour extended it is over.  there should be a Certainty before we meet as to the third Commer.  I have made it agreeable to what we thought the best way , that is, the two to name a third, but it may be altered if I knew how - I have <minuted> nothing as to Mr Jos Carr - nor as to the Argumentation Land indeed the latter does not appear necessary for Reasons which I shall mention at Meeting - and we have no Authority as to the former, the Patron and Ordinary shou’d have been consulted, but even as to his own Mind and the Intentions of those others whom it concerns we have no Certainty - do you not think that Mr Bates and Mr Fryer shoud attend the Meeting?  Mr Walton will - I sent the petn to Mr Grey - the Bill will be a confounded long one, I have finished 35 large folio Pages which in my hand is a great Deal - as the two Pastures are to be Stinted by different Classes of people - and not one general Stinting thro’ all - the Line will be drawn as to Boundary and that Line will divide the Parishes, but will not an open <Meeting> lead to Quarrels & Houndings etc

      Yrs    Ralph Heron
