Mr B. Jan 19th 1826 As the Election must take place in a very short time, and you will have to furnish the house at Bywell I should recommend you to defer the building of a house for me for the present. If you would allow me to remove my family at Mayday to near to a town where I could get my children to a good day school it would be a great advantage to them as well as myself, as educating such a number at a boarding school with me is out of the question … the school at Hexham has been closed … at Alnwick there is an excellent moderate one and if you will allow me to place my family there for the present (until a house is built, at your convenience, for me at Bywell) the distance at first might seem great, but the difference between Alnwick and Newcastle is but a few hours ride.
