To Mr Richd Ellis in Hexham Newcastle 20th Ap[ri]l 1762 Sir / The district which Wm Summers & p[ar]tners wants to have granted them to work for coals is of so great an extent that notwithstanding they are in so great a hurry, it will be proper to have some information before I can judge of that proposal. I shall therefore write to Mr Richd Harrison ab[ou]t it & as soon as I can get his answer you shall hear from me. If a one & twenty yrs Lease must be granted to them, Sir Walter must be wrote to ab[ou]t it as soon as they agree to what shall be thought a reasonable rent. I am etc JR PS. I shall desire Mr Harrison to call & give you his opinion of that proposal.
