Mr. Bell						N.Castle 18th. June 1801

Hexham Abbey    Mr. J. Bell


      Mr. John Surtees of Ebchester who Mr. Walton recommended to me for making a Valuation of Hexham Tithes, called on me & wished that Business might be delayed a short time, and that he would call on you & settle with you as to the time of its being done.-

      Some Packages are expected from London which on their Arrival, shall be forwarded by the Carrier to Hexham.-

      If Mrs. Hales on Examination of Mr. Mather’s Bill for sundry Articles for the Abbey, should find it right, I desire that she may sign it and send it to the Office that it may be discharged.   I am &c.- J.E.B.
