Hon Sir

	I have recd back the extracts which my son made from the writings you have in the office relating to Anick Grange and I hope all the difficulties attending the matters will upon further enquiry be cleared up.   I know of no business here at present to call you to town but I would be pleased to fix on a life to be named on the renewal of Redburn for which Dr Gregory is willing to take 35£ if done in a months time.    There is also a life dropt in Lintzgarth Estate held under the B[isho]p wch sho[ul]d also be renewed and one name may be put in to both leases.     Redburn is set for 48£ and Lintz garth for 10£ a year    I am etc     JR
