Ra Heron Esq* the Chanc that this Cause might be set down
Newcastle on for further hearing, this day, and I was serv’d wth

this Morning, & just lasted, 3 minutes. His Honor
directed an issue of quant dam* to be try’d at the next
Assizes for Cumberland. Mr Madocks requested that
it might be adjourned to next Tuesday, as the Clk

the hearing, but his Honor did not seem very
much disposd to oblige him, unless he woud
say, that the Clk of the peace for Northd woud
give him better reasons, than the Defn Councell
had done, to appear make him change his
mind. Mr Scott & Mr Law are retained for Mr E.
