To Mr John Bell at Mr Ellis’s

In Hexham                                                                                               Newcas[tle] 9th July 1766

Sir             It runs in my mind that I either wrote or told you that Sir Walter had promised Col[ne]l Clavering that when the term was expired, which I think is 7 years, for which the Allotments of Dotland Comon were to be tithe free he would, for an acknowledgement only, let the proprietors have their tithe for three years. So when that time comes you will call them together and let them sign a memorandum to that purpose.

Pray has Sir Lanc[elo]t Allgood signed the two Leases which I sent you by Mr Turner the 5th June last.

I hear Mr Heron and you have been viewing the Incroachments on the wastes of the manor; and hope some steps will be taken to get acknowledgements for them. I am etc       HR
