If you chuse to engage him, Mr Westgarth can send for him when you are at Allanheads, and the sooner he comes to Blaydon the better. He told me he could have a recommendation f[ro]m Mr Tweddle the q[uake]rs Chief agent which would be well enough as it would imply a consent to his quitting their service. I am etc   HR
