Content DescriptionWrites that when he received the earl's last commands relating to the 'Carr', the ground was covered with snow; has made some detailed observations upon the Carr, and will transmit these ideas to the earl by the next post; mentions just 2 aspects of it, first, the fences, he argues, are in a very neglected condition; second the abstract of the article sent to him says that Mr Porter and Mr Johnson have leave to 'stubb and grubb', but it does not say they have to stubb, as this affects the value and should be taken into account with regard to the tenant's rent.
