Content DescriptionExpects recipient to have heard from Mr Clay about the meeting with the verderers; explains that the petitioners' complaints about the rabbits from the warren eating their corn and grass have proved untrue; in fact the sheep belonging to the Calverton men themselves, and kept on Lord Harley's land in Satterfield and Sansome Wood, have been eating the crops; reports that Mr Neale offered to lease them the land for 21 years on condition that John Baguley destroyed the rabbits, to which Chappell objected and was over-ruled; writes that he would not allow the tenants to have fencewood to enclose the same; informs him that both Sir Francis Mollyneux and Mr Justice Cartwright have applied for the post of verder.
