Sir                                                                                 Hexham Abbey 27th Janury 1793

	With this I send you my Cash Accot for the Half Year ending 31st of Decem. last and also a Copy of that for the Current half Year as far as the Same is advanced

	I have mentioned to one of the Gentlemen who wrote you respecting the Riding of the Boundary your Intention of being in the North sometime before that Business can be proceeded with considering the Situation of the Country and that when you come you will consult with your People and the Boundary shall be rode at a proper Season

	On the 21st of Septemr last Mr Skelton wrote me you considered you would subscribe the £20 which Sir Thomas Blackett was to have paid towards the Church at Warden if I thought it necessary.  In answer to which I wrote Mr Skelton that Mr Blackett and I had talked the matter over when Sir Thomas sent Mr Blackett the Letter wrote by the Minister and others on that subject and that we thought he might give the £20 nor did I see any Reason for altering my Opinion when I wrote Mr Skelton or to that Effect but having had no positive Directions from Mr Skelton to pay the Money when called for I presume it has escaped your Memory to desire him to do so.  The Inhabitants of the Chapel of Newbrough in the Parish of Warden whose Chapel is to be rebuilt are anxious to Know your Determination

	The Meetings for signing the Consent Bills for the Division of Grindon and Langley South Commons in which you are in some Measure interested are now appointed for Wednesday and Thursday the 6th and 7th of next Month which I will attend agreeable to the Instructions given by Mr Skelton           

      I am Sir  Your Faithful and most obedt Servt

                    Jno Bell

[On reverse:] Thomas Richd Beaumont Esqr/ Bretton    Yorkshire
