Copy of Mr Williamson’s Note on the Clause for infranchising in the Weardale Bill

‘It appears to me that the whole of these provisions respecting infranchising the leaseholds had better be omitted in this Bill, & if thought expedient upon further consideration these objects may be afterwards be brought forward distinctly & carried into Effect by an Act for that purpose.’    R.H.W.
Undated but in sequence with other letters and notes from early April 1799, and given here as 1st April
