Edmund Gardiner has been told that valuations were not made known to the Parties concerned: 'Thus I am left completely in the dark, wholly ignorant of what has been transacting in this matter and I can not but think that I, as a Person having so large an Interest therein, ought not to be kept any longer wholly uninformed upon the subject'.
