Mr Scott

	We reced yours of the 24 June last which before now we have not had time to Answer

	As to the Division of the Northside of Scremerston however you and the Joynt takers understood it, we always Meant that it Should be Enjoyed in equall Shares, Each paying an equall Share of the Rent and in that way it was understood to be agreed when Mr Boag was last at Scremerston

	Wee disire now that a division may be made of the whole north Side into four parts equally to be Sett by one Indifferent person chose by Each of you and the imedately as we disire to prevent all manner of disputes  If any of the parties object to the manner of division may acquain them that we determined to have it in no other way as we do not See it can be otherwaies with Justice to you all            We are Your Hble Servts

                                                                                       NW & HB
