To Mr John Bell at Mr Elis’s

In Hexham                                                                     Newcas[tle] 3rd Nov[embe]r 1765

Sir      I have rec[eive]d your Letters of the 28th ult[im] [last month] & 1st inst [this month] & think what you say about the proposed division of Keenley common is very right; especially about the tithe barn. I have spoke again to S[i]r Lan[celot] Allgood & he has taken a mem[oran]dum to enquire about the coach-house built adj[acen]t the Old Gaol. However when you see him in Hexham I desire you will ask him for 6d for a year’s rent of it due May 8th last & you may say if you think proper that I desired you to do so. He wants a Lease of Mr Bacon’s Leadmill, as I mentioned to you, wch will be got done here: but he asked me about a peathouse adjoining that mill for wch 5s a yr is p[ai]d to S[i]r W[alte]r & wch I do not know any thing of neither can I find it in the list of fee farm rents & therefore should be glad if you can tell me any thing about it. I am etc HR
