Dear Sir,

Having been prompted at your suggestion to put forward the taking a new Census of the Parish I with much pleasure take the earliest opportunity of making you acquainted with the result I only received it yesterday the only remark I can make upon it is that it has been done by the Bailiff of the hundred the deputy Overseer & the county Clerk. & it appears to have been done correctly . I believe the Parties would make oath to it if required I also add a copy of the Survey of 1821<2>

I remain Dear Sir Your obt Sert
