Dear Sir

      On the receipt of your favor yesterday, a search was made by Scruton and to my surprise the draught of the Weardale Inclosure Bill was found in Mr. Castle’s Office where it had laid since the beginning of this Month. My Lord Bishop in his last Letter says he hopes the Case was the same as the draught you settled. I haven’t the least doubt but it is, yet on finding Mr Castle had not compar’d it; I procured the Case from Scruton which I herewith send, it <will> be more pleasant to my Lord that you <just> look it over, & return it to me, should any thing occur I’ll be oblig’d by being informed as I have fixed a Day the next Week to go over the whole the d[raugh]t of the Bill with Scruton before it meets the Reading.

      I am Dr. Sir Your very much obld. Servt.

      Arthur Mowbray
Addressee unclear but from a reference in letter from Mowbray to the Bishop of Durham sent the same day it is assumed that this letter was intended for Thomas Bernard.
