I'm informed that some body pretending to
have yowr order has put on ſome sheep on that part
of the rock of the Caſtle of dumbarton which is without
the walls. I ſuppoſe this has been done either by a
miſtake or upon miſinformation, for all without the
walls belongs to me, and I have left that together with
the Caſtle green to a tennent. Their can be no diſpute
in this matter, for the right which the Queen has from
me to this Caſtle is expreſs that the walls and the
march, which ye may ſatiſfy your ſelf in when ye
pleaſe. ſo I expect ye will give orders to remove
theſe ſheep, and let my tennent have [¿] poſſeſſion
of all without the walls. I am

Sr
Yr moſt humble ſervant
