The fourth part being 25,765 ac. may be disposed of to 56 undertakers in such several proportions as follows; viz.--4, of 1,000 ac. a piece=4,000; 8, of 600=4,800; 10, of 500=5,000; 10, of 400=4,000; 12, of 300=3,600; 12, of 200=2,400. These several proportions are of good and profitable lands, and amount to 23,800 acres. There will then remain to satisfy the claim made by the Bishop of Ossory, and to augment the glebes to the Church, if your Majesty please, 1,965 acres. And if the Bishop and the rest can be otherwise provided for, then this 1,965 may be disposed of to undertakers, or so much of it as your Deputy and Commissioners shall think fit.
