Dr Sir,

I am much obliged by your note of yesterday – Every one interested in Lord Talbot’s success cannot but rejoice at the result of the delay which took place in it, by adjornment from last session . since now the case appears to be proved beyond the possibility of a doubt; and [illegible]ily so let me add through the instrumentality of those very valuable deeds which you so kindly placed at his Lordships disposal.

I will take care to obtain & send you a perfect copy of the evidence given This I expect as soon as it the promoting[?] is perfected –

The major had every opportunity given him to put in his claim; by presenting a Petition in the usual way – He did not avail himself of the permission thus afforded him; And he did not do so because as I believe, he has no sort of Case but an imaginary one suggested by similarity of name –

I beg to remain, Dr Sir, Yr very obedt Servant
Richd: Nicholson
