To   William Charleton  Esqr.                                          Newcas.   26 July 1770

   at Alnwick   

Sir     I am Sorry I was not at home when you called upon me about the proposed deed for Confirming the Allotments of Whelpington Moor; because I should have liked rather to have talked over my Objections than give them in Writing.  But , as you left a request that I would write you whether I approved of the Draft, I beg leave to say that it is not usual to have any quit rent reserved to the Lord of the Manor, & that Sir Walter Blackett has not paid any for his part of this Moor since the Division of it.

    Another objection is, that the Satisfaction to be made for damage by winning or working any Collieries, Mines or Quarries or by Waggonways Etc is confined to New Mines etc.  This is leaving a Door open for disputes: & therefore I think the Clauses relating to this matter should be altered and made general.                 I am etc    HR
