Letter from the same [Mr. Monk], dated 27th February, 1789, viz.

"Mr Sparrow's case has been continued from Term to Term. Till next April Court will be more than a Year from the Commencement of the Action. You must now determine, and that without Delay, Whether to endeavour by an Injunction from Chancery to stop his Proceedings at Common Law, or let him proceed to Judgement and Execution. All that could be done to obtain time in the Court where the Suit is now pending has been, and to risk a Trial at Law in the present circumstances of the Case is by no means advisable. It is requisite in your determination to consider that the costs of Proceedings in Chancery are very great and must be paid in Cash as the Business goes on, and that, for that purpose, a Sum of Money, or a [Fund] where to obtain What may be wanted from time to time to pay Fees, must be lodged in Halifax.
