My Lord,

      I have fixed to meet the Committee of the Land Owners of Weardale at Wolsingham on Thursday the 28 Inst. as to the Division. I tho[ug]t it better to inform your Lordship of the day. Mr. Pearson talks of attending the Meeting; if any Thing further occur, I will be obliged by being informed, as I could wish to go prepared; I think I have them now in good Trim, and I wish to keep them so;_ I find they have thought of going to Parlia[men]t this Session;

      I only yesterday received Mr Lockwood’s Answer wishing for more time, and this day I have wrote him the Money is expected.

      Does Your Lordship wish any Wood to be cut this Year.

      I am My Lord, Your Lordship’s very much obt. and most obt. Hble. Servant

      Arthur Mowbray
