James Hamilton (Agent in Strabane) to the Earl of Abercorn in London .

Shaw who went to Menagh Hill the 23rd December to get possession of James Cunningham’s farm came here yesterday and told me that Cunningham declared that he would not give up till he was forced out by law; he told me they had put him off with fair promises and appointed him to be there last Tuesday, that then Cunningham preremptorily (?nbs) refused giving up; James Baird of Tavanaclare brother in law of Cunningham came about an hour after Shawleft me, to tell me that Shaw offered to sell his right to him for 30 guineas, that he though it a great deal too much, but that he followed me into this town, in order to agree with him if possible; I told Baird his agreeing with Shaw would answer no end; in this way my Lord they go on, and the settlement is delayed; I know of no others who refuse going out but Samuel Monteeth of Tullywhisker, William White of Desart and Robert Drew of Ballymagorry,Monteeth is very poor, has had little these many years, and quite unable to manage land at present; his reason is impaired, which I find is a disorder of the family.
