My Lord

      By this post I send your Lordship an account of what was passed, as to the <lines> of Boundary on Findon Hill Common, the Clause sent from London containing little if anything more than what is general and already in the Bill, caused me to write the Case etc which seems to meet the Ideas of all the parties I have had an opportunity of showing it to.

      Calculated £1016 8s 6d

      In haste to save post

      I am my Lord your Lordships very much humble & obedient Servant

      Arthur Mowbray

The Hon[ora]ble & Rt Reverend The Lord Bishop of Durham
