      Wee have a letter from Wm Lee Accquainting us, that you had wrote to him to require our Authority from John Furnace to bring an Action against Carrick which he has Accordingly done and in answer Furnace tells him he is ready to give you any Authority that is Necessary provided he is kept harmless which to be sure he must be, as the Comissioners mean to be at all the expence that shall attend the prosecution. If therefore It is proper to bring the action in Furnaces name (as most certain it is) Pray give him such an Indemnity as may make him safe as to any expence and this shall be an Indemnity to you from Sr Yr most hble Servs

      NW, HB

PS. Pray be Expeditious in this affair, and let the Fellow be made an Example of, as a Tenor to all others
