My Lord

      I take the Liberty of sending your Lordship an Extract of a letter Rec’d this morning from Mr Fenwick, the Solicitor for the Findon Hill Inclosure Bill, by which it appears that the application to Parliament is dropt for this session.

      I have the Honor to be My Lord Your Lordship’s obliged & very obedient servant

      Geo. Bramwell

Findon Hill Division

There seems to be so much difficulty in this division Mr Hopper Williamson is so clearly of opinion that we cannot with any prospect of advantage proceed with it without some previous agreement with the opposing parties that we have for this year or session given up all thought of pushing the bill forward. I hope however by next year we shall be able to come to some compromise with the parties.
