To Mr Lan’t Allgood at Hexham

Sr, yesterday I got the books were in Mr Brumells possession by wch & what informations Mr Wilkinson can give me I find his acct to stand as within. I have been this day with the commissioners who shewed his acct given them of his affairs from wch I can gather nothing at all. Morrow was the day fixed for signing his certificate but have prevailed for a longer time. I hope you will be in towne next week to order what will be best to be done. I sent to Mr Brumell to know if he had any thing to offer in further discharge of his acct. His ansr was it was a long time since he lay the Bookes so could remember nothing further then if he had <Vurtue?> Sr Wr would be in his debt.
