Scott c Surtees

I received back the statement with your remarks thereon for which I feel much obliged to you and will now trouble you with a few more questions.

1st  Was the Brewery sold to Mr Morrison for £1500 subject to the Annuity of £50 to Mrs Hunter

2nd  Can you procure at my expense an Abstr. of the Conveyance to Col. Beaumont this would be very important -

3rd  When did the two sons die and did Isaac carry on the farm for the benefit of the Trusts under Testators Will –

4th  In what year did Robert Surtees die?

5th  When and for whom did Isaac Hunter receive the £3285.6.4 mentioned in your marginal observation

I wish Isaac Hunter would furnish me (through you) with what documents he has in his possession.  He may rely on my returning them to him & he may also rely that his name shall not be mentioned as the person giving me information.

As t<ime> is drawing near may I beg & hope for your early attention to this matter, & you will much oblige  Sir	Your very obedt. Servt.

	Jno. Bearl


25 Tokenhouse Yard 17 <or 16th> May 1833
