Lordship of what passed in the Chancery here, relating to the Order of the most Honourable the House
of the Lords, concerning the Bishop of Derry; but,
believing the Lords would be willing to have all the
Satisfaction possible in that Matter, I have troubled
your Lordship with the enclosed Letter from the Sheriffs of Derry, giving me an Account of the full Execution of my Order, and the peaceable and quiet
Possession the Society are now in, of all the Lands

There is likewise the same entire Obedience given to
the Order relating to my Lord Meath, for the Possession of Lands in Tipperary. If there remain any
Thing farther to satisfy the Lords, I have received
His Majesty's Leave, and hope to be in London in a
very short Time. I am, with very great Respect,
"Your Lordship's most humble
"and most obedient Servant,
"My Lord Chancellor. "Jo. Methwen."
