Content DescriptionBefore received Harley's letter, had not heard any of the threats of the Duke of Norfolk's tenants, but will shortly talk with Mr Sherboun, the duke's agent; comments that his last letter gave Harley a full account of the case being proposed by Mr Cossen for straightening the fence; reports that he has also spoken to Mr Sherboun, in Mr Cossen's hearing, about the plan as a compliment to 'so great a neighbour as the duke', as the ground in question clearly belongs to Harley; as Sherboun was told this long ago, thinks that if he had any real objections they would have been made before, without threats from the duke's tenants; mentions that Mr Levinz had £100 last Tuesday which he promised to pay to Sir Robert Child in London for Harley's use; will meet Mr Gace tomorrow at Lincoln.
