[on outer leaf:] Sir James Graham to Viscount Howick 4 Decr 1832  / Mr Grey


Admiralty  4th Decr 1832

My dear Lord

	To enable Mr Grey to come to a final decision, I forward to You the answer of Ld Auckland to the Letter, which you sent to me yesterday. He has enclosed a Draft of the New Instructions to the Receiver; and you may transmit both this Document, which will in substance be adopted by the Board, and Ld Auckland’s Letter to Mr Grey. After he has considered them, I will trouble you to return them to me.

	The Salary cannot be increased beyond the Sum offered in my former Letter.

	The Residence must be fixed at Hexham or at Haydon Bridge.

	No other occupation or business can be allowed, which is inconsistent with the constant Residence and close attention to the business of the Estate, prescribed in the Admiralty Instructions.

	The cases put by Mr Grey, and the arrangements which he would seem to contemplate, do not fall within the proscribed line of ‘other professions, pursuit, or business.’

	I shall be anxious to know Mr Grey’s final decision.

      Very truly yrs

		(signed) JRG Graham

The Viscount Howick
