Content DescriptionWrites that he has been with Mr Levinz who wanted him to let Mr Digby know that he had received a letter from Harley relating to Digby's claim to the manor of Mansfield Woodhouse; wants Mr Digby to let him know when and where they can meet to discuss this claim; Digby has answered that he is not yet ready for such a meeting, but will give notice when he is.

Remainder of letter is damaged, with text loss, leaving meaning obscure; apparently refers to a dispute over some horses and matters to do with Clipstone Park.
