To Mr John Bell at Mr Ellis’s Hexham                                                Newca[stle] 15th Septr 1768


Inclosed I return John Oliver’s Case with Mr Fawcett’s opinion thereon; for which I gave him half a Guinea & have placed it to Sir Walter’s Acco[un]t and you will let me know whether it ought to be placed so, or you are to repay me.

I wonder Mr Hunter has not got Elliott over to view Westburnhope and give his testimony about the Ground taken in – I shall write him about it – but pray is not the Moor which Messrs Smeaton and Walton say this Incroachment is made on, one of the Wastes of the Manor of Hexham and if so, have not the hospital Tenants made some some inclosures from it?

When Mr Wilson returns from Yorkshire I will speak to him about the Suit and Service of the hospital Estates.

You may send me the Money you received for me of Mr White by any hand you approve of.

I shall be glad to hear what is done in the Arbitration concerning the Tithe of Lucker Moor. I am etc    HR
