Sir         Sr Wr has ordered Mr Widdrington to examine into & make out a state of the case about the two Leases of Weardale mines to be laid before council. Mr Widdrington says, to enable him to do it completely he must have copies of the Bill & answer in the cause in wch the depositions you sent me were taken, to wit Wharton ag[ain]st the Bishop & others, & also copy of the Cross bill & answer & the sev[era]l depositions taken in the cause B[isho]p of Durham ag[ain]st Wharton & others in 1684. Sir Wr therefore desires you will order copies to be taken of these things & that you will send them down as soon as possible for he wants to have an opinion taken before the B[isho]p comes in to the Country. I hope the clerk in Court will be as expeditious as possible.   I am etc      HR
