A close up of a newspaper

Wrote to Mr. Sheldon of Brailes, Lord of the Manor of Sibford, requesting him, in the name of various parishioners to put a stop to building operations commenced by John Adkins, Stone Mason, on one of the plots enclosed from the waste on the Green at Burdrop, where he is about to construct a workshop and a cottage unless prevented. Miss Dix came to me and asked us to write, as the proposed erection would be a nuisance to many of the Burdrop people.
