Dear Sir

	I send you the Inclosed for your Perusal, and after having considered the Contents very deliberately, am clearly of Opinion that there is not any thing required on the part of Greenwich Hospital that can give Offence to Sir Thos Blackett or his Agents, in that if granted would amount to a Condescension.  All that Mr Walton wants, according to his Letter of 19th Ultima, is a direct Intimation from Authority (i.e. from yourself, not thro’ me etc) that Sir Thos Blackett will consent to agree to the disputed Ground therein described being divided, in order to enable Messrs Walton and Turner to put the Question of Consent to the Comns of Greenwich Hospital on their part.  I hope you will not refuse to write to Sir Thomas on the Subject & I am Dear Sir

                                   Your very obedient Servt         Nich Ruddock

[In Bell’s hand:] Note this Letter came to J Bell the 2nd Decemr 1791
Undated but assumed her to be dated 1st Dec as it was received on the 2nd
