Content DescriptionRefers to his agreement with the late Duke of Newcastle that he would consent to the destruction of his warren at Hemsley but only if the duke's warren at Clipstone was also destroyed; mentions that his warren at Winkerfield is well out of the way of the road of the deer in their chase, and therefore will not have to be destroyed; explains that the rent of the warren at Hemsley was £30; does not know what the rent is on Clipstone warren; believes that the situation has been misrepresented to Harley; explains the reasons why he put up his rents on the warren at Winkerfield; hopes Harley will honour the late duke's promise which he thinks will very much oblige the 'Gentleman Forresters' and sportsmen of the area.
