Sir Mr. Clubby of [Firth?] on [Howser?] has called upon me today on the subject of Admiralty [Drorts?] thus shewn me your letter to him dated the 9 Inst - directing him to sell all wreck &c that came into his possession on or before the 22 [?] inclusive -

I beg to acquaint you that I have directed him not to attend to your Instructions, [?] refer you to my letter of the 20 Inst - calling upon you as the representation of your late Father to deliver to me all Books Accounts, Notes &c appertaining to wreck, that he had in his possession at the time of his decease, - at the same time I beg to assure you that whatever emoluments he might have been entitled to, - up to that time, shall be duly paid to you, - But I apprehend you have no authority, - as your fathers representative, - to make sale of any wreck &c as his authority ceased with his existence should you have made arrangements for Sale of any wreck property - I beg you will have the goodness to cancel the same - Also to apprize me when it will be convenient for you to deliver to me the Books &c required by my aforesaid letter of the 20 Inst

I will therefore thank you to inform me of the extent of Coast within the said limits over which you claim Manorial rights, --with the particulars of your Title thereto, -- and the address to which I am to send notices, -- Unless you have already done so in compliance with the [10th?] Sec of the act 9 & 10 [?] -- in which latter case I will thank you to inform me of the date of your letter & to whom such particulars were supplied J.S.
