Sir                                           Newcastle 9th Novemr 1797

As Mr Blackett is absent and it is necessary for Coll. Beaumont to be informed in what way my Father (since his return home) proposes regulating his engagement for the Alterations at Hexham Abbey he requests of you to communicate it to Coll. Beaumont  My Father would wish to complete the Carpenter Work as it is in his opinion, that in no stage it can be left off to Satisfaction: he will with Coll. Beaumont's leave send Mr. Stephenson at stated times to inspect it, for tho he is recovered much within the last Month he will not be well enough for personal attendance some time.  he hopes by such regulation to have the Carpenter work put in a better brain for finishing than it has been under his Son:  my Father does not propose Mr. Stephenson going as Architect generally but merely sent to inspect that Part of the work contracted for, Viz, the Carpenter and Joinering.

                    My Father begs his best Compts. to you Sir,   

                                       and am with every respect 

                                                           Yours < ?> Dorthy Newton

Mr. J. Bell  Hexham Abbey
