Mr John Bell at Hexham                                              Newcas[tle] 21 June 1765

Sir      Sir Walter tells me he has given Sir Lanc[elo]t Allgood an order in writing directed to Mr I. Hunter to cut peats on the moors near Blackhall Mill for smelting some Lead ore that he has there; But now doubting that there may be some impropriety in such an order he bids me advise with you; for if it should be wrong he will get it back again from Sir Lanc[elo]t Imediatily.

I spoke to Sir Walter about the Coach house built against the old Goal [sic] House and he bids me tell you that the man who now has it should be required to pay an acknowledgement of 6d or a shilling a year to prevent his obtaining a perpetuity in it. Mrs Jurin says she will examine about the watercourse when she comes up to the Hermitage. I am etc HR
