To Mr Isaac Hunter at                                                         Newcas[tle] 25th Novem[be]r 1764


Sir      I shall be glad to see you soon, about the road from Edmondbiers to Blaydon: for the first step ordered to be taken is to indict the inhabitants of Woodhead quarter for not repairing the Road. But then before we can do this we must be able to prove that it wants repair, that is, that it is not passable without great danger & difficulty. If you can obtain such proof, we must then collect our other witnesses, to prove it a highway, against Christmas Sessions. So that you had best come by Mr Surtee ‘s and talk the matter over with him and then we can judge better how to proceed when you come hither.  I am etc              Hen Richmond
