Hexham Abbey			

Dr. Sir

      I have heard from Colonel and Mrs. Beaumont in answer to the Proposals of Thos. Hill & James Heston for a Lease of a part of the Colliery of St. Oswald; they are of Opinion that the certain Rent should not be less than £25 – p[er] Annm. to commence at May-day next on a Term of fifteen years, to be at Liberty of giving up the Colliery on six Month’s Notice being given; they likewise desire that Mr. Ruddock may be acquainted that Coln. Beaumont is willing to subscribe 30 pr. Cent on his former Subscription to the Branch Road from Corbridge to Heddon, presuming the Duke of Northumberland & the Commissioners of Greenwich Hospital will do the like. I am &c. - J.E.B.
