are to rid & lend the Ground in a Customary Manner
in the likes cases, now if it was not been the custom to do
it in this place, yet if it is custom generallyper [..]
the Words like Cases, seems to established fit: there is
a Covenant to expand 500, wh: I presunce to have been
Dom.In respect to any nonperformance or any Breach
of Covenants in the Lesser of B [..] wick can only say as in
my last that if you & Mr. Way are of opinion that
there is sufficient Ground to claim & presented I can
see no reason to give it up, but I did apprehend from
