      Mr Blackett received your letter with those of Mr Shaftoe, which requiring more time to answer than he can at present apply to that purpose, being engaged in a multiplicity of business and totally unacquainted with the nature of the dispute he hopes you will have the goodness to excuse him in not answer[in]g your letter.-Mr. Shaftoe’s behaviour on the occasion Mr. Blackett thinks very unhandsome, but rather than be involved in a Law Suit (particularly with Mr. <S>.) he would advise a proposition to him to leave the matter in dispute to reference by two disinterested persons should Mr. Shaftoe object to this mode of settlement, and the custom of the Manor can be ascertained, he would recommend that Mr. Williamsons opinion be obtained [struck out: as to the dispute in question]  respecting it.

					I am &c. T. Crawhall
