To the Rev[eren]d Dr Sharp at Hartburn                                    Newcas[tle]  21st  April 1764

near Morpeth

Sir             I have given Mr Fawcet the Copy of Mr Graham’s nomination, which I received last night from Mr Brown. But as there are at present some Difficulties [underlined] attending the Title of Mollersteads Estate  ; and as all the proposed Augmentations are, as Mr Fawcet  understands dependant upon this purchase; He chuses to have them all [underlined] cleared up before he proceeds with the deed for severing this chapel from the Curacy. And for the same reason He thinks that nothing can yet be done properly about Ninebanks Chapel. But, besides this, there is another difficulty, with regard to the Ground intended for the Yard for this latter Chapel, wch is that no surrender can be prepared until a proper description is given to Mr Bell, Clerk of the Courts at Hexham, of the Ground intended to be appropriated to this use. & till such Surrender is properly prepared by him no Lre of Attorney will be effectual ; because the intended Surrender must be specified in the Lre of Attorney. If therefore you will please to order any Body to give Mr Bell this necessary description he will prepare the Surrender & send it to me; & it shall be forwarded to Sir John Eden’s Attorney at Durham without Delay.  I am etc                    H R
