Lintzgarth Farm is held by Lease of the Bishop of Durham & pays 5s4d Land Tax, Crook Oak leased of Mr Silvertop, Land Taz for it is 4s4d: I did not but those into the Acct thinking W Blackett wd not purchase the Land Tax of them . Stanhope to be leased of the Bishop also pays no Land Tax. If W Blackett wd to have it made in any other form than the one sent will readily alter it. I have sent you the silver acct & by next week will send you another plate.

Mr. Tho Crawhall  Col Beaumont’s office  Westgate St, N’castle
