	Annexed is a Copy of Certain Resolutions entered into by the Lead Comp[an]y and published last Week in the Durham Newspaper So the Comp[an]y have thus given publicity to their proceedings, and as the proposed Contribution of Four Hundred Pounds is in aid of the Bishop of Durham’s intention of establishing Schools in Weardale, where your Interest is paramount to all others, I have considered it my duty, to transmit the same for your information. – If in the Resettlement of your Estates it should be your intention to include the Leasehold property in London; you will be pleased to give directions to Mr Hopkins to have the necessary abstracts made from the Deeds in his possession. – I beg to remark that the premises in Montague Close are of no use to the Tooley Street establishment & endeavours have been made to dispose of them in consequence of the communication I made to you on the subject sometime <since> but no one, altho[ugh] applications have been made to purchase has yet been found inclined to give the price demanded for them, Perhaps therefore you may not think it expedient to include those premises in the arrangement now contemplated.
