Mr <Naters> has been to Bradley and got all the Apple Grafts he wants.  I shall have the valuation of the farms you purpose selling ready in a few days ... If Mrs Beaumont should wish to purchase them would you object treating with her.  The accounts at Alnwick for Beds still remain unpaid and <....> W Bell settled his the partners have been very clamorous.  Mr Horsington offered Mr Canon for those he engaged about 2/6 a night but the other candidates have paid 5/- and 7/6 for the best.  It is true that too many beds were engaged but I do not see how the partners can be expected to take 2/6 ... The new staircase is in a state of forwardness and I hope when finished will have a good appearance.
