To Mr Collingwd Forster Attern at Law Alnwick					8th Dec 1759

D[ea]r Sir

I recd your Lre of the 3rd inst wch I defer’d answering till I co[ul]d see Mr Robson who is now here, he says he does know the name of the Ring net stand marked B in his own plan, which you receive inclosed.  So that I know of no way to get it but by writing to Mr Ian Bunn of Berwick who farms Sir Wm Fishery, wch I desire you will be pleased to do    As to your draft wch I return you inclosed I do not doubt but it is “very” right: so I did not lay it before Mr Fawcett as you di not desire that might be done if you think it necessary

you will return it to me or send it to him, if the former, let me know what I am to pay him.

I send you also inclosed copy of a lre I have recd frm Mr Jeffries with my answer to it, for I tho[ugh]t it but good manners to give him some ans[wer]s tho' it is not to his purpose.  He talks of Roads  let him wth the Collry.  I know of no particular roads mentioned in the article when Mr Bulman let him the Coll.ry & if  he let them any Roads verbally wch he had no right to himself it is no obligation on Sir Wr.  It is very strange that Mr Jeffries sho[ul]d never complain of the alteration till 4 or 5 years after the enclosures were made.  I do not hear any thing yet abt Messrs Craister and Bewicks proceedings, when they move you will hear from Mr Darwin  I am Etc     JR
