Mr Tho[ma]s Salkeld Innkeeper Alnwick			Newcastle Dec 19 1806



I have received your letter addressed to Mr Beaumont, and am surprised at its contents. Your charge during the late Election at Alnwick is a very exorbitant one, by your own account £89-14-3 for 12 persons entertainment for one noght only. I observe the Sum paid you on that account by Mr Beaumont was £20 with the addition of £10 jointly with Lord Hawick – These Sums I think handsome payment in discharge of your Bill and in full proportion to the Sums paid generally to the Innkeepers in Alnwick, with which they were perfectly satisfied.		I am etc 		CB
