Novr 17h <1>

Dear Sir,

I am much obliged to you for the information contained in your letter of the 12h Instant,<2> which has this day reached me.

I trust I shall have the advantage of seeing you at the first meeting of the Chippenham Guardians, when I will not fail to bring the subject of the Lacock Poor House before the Board. If the House be appropriated for To the common purposes of the Union, fair compensation will of course be made to Lacock parish.

I remain, Dear Sir Very faithfully Yours
