To Mr John Bell in Hexham                                                       Newcas[tle] 2nd March 1766

Sir     To what I wrote you in the postscript of my last Letter I have now to add that Sir W[alte]r is very desirous of having the duty done as usual both at St John Lee and the Chapels belonging to it till he fills up the vacancy and would satisfy any clergyman for doing it, only he objects to one Cook, whom he had heard preach at Hexham. He thinks Mr Laidman is the best person you can consult as to the choice of the person or persons to be employed in this interval and also as to what ought to be given them for officiating. But who ever they are he would have them acquainted that they are not to expect the Curacy in consequence of such officiating.

Dukesfield pay will be in a few weeks – do you think you can spare me any money for it? I shall not need any Silver. I am etc HR
