I received the melancholy intelligence of the death of Maria Bigge, which tho' it was not unexpected, grieves me very deeply...As I heard of Maria's death on my way, I was very unfil for business, but I was obliged to proceed to Durham to meet the Agents of the Bishop. Mr. Crawhall accompanied me and we made what seems to be a very good bargain, viz. that the Bishop is to receive £1000 per Quarter during his holding the see of Durham, in due of the 9th share of lead ore.
