[Report by Gov Cochrane] No 3d November 27th 1752

My Lord

My last letter was no 2d November 11th
As Major Christian is dead and John Clarke and his wife both discharged I am apt to believe your Grace will not be troubled any more about the affair But in case Mr Stevenson who is gon to London should call upon your Grace for an answer to the petition I have inclose the petition with an answer to it which if your Grace approves of may be sent upon the petition In another packet I have sent your Grace a full case of the affair of the warren which will plainly show your Grace that Clarke's complaints are altogether with reason and in the same packet is Clarke's petition to the court here just before he was sett at liberty. Tho' Clarke is a very foolish man yett I believe he would not have persever'd in his folly so long had be not been incouraged by Mr Stevenson who in this country is called Counciller Timber head
I am with great esteem
My Lord Your Grace's Most faithfull and most obedient humble servant

Basil Cochrane
