Messrs I Griffiths & Son Durham. –

I am favored with your Letter of the 12th, enclosing Copies of yours to Messrs Bainbridge of Alston, and of their answer. I agree with you that the Appeal should be adjourned over from next Sessions to the following Easter Sessions; and in this Opinion Mr Williamson  Concurs. – I observe the request of Messrs Baibnbridge to you, for any information that you can properly give as to the nature of the Agreements between the Rector <etc> and Colonel Beaumont. – On this subject I am sure you will think with me that We cannot be too reserved, or too much upon our guard; and I mention this, under the impression that in your Communication to Messrs Bainbridge to admit as Evidence, the execution of Leases or Agreements for Leases from Mr Hardinge to Col Beaumont of the Tithes of the latter’s mines etc, it might not have been more guarded to have said Instruments generally; but this remark you will have the goodness to receive as arising from my fears of Messrs Bainbridge’s readiness, under a correct Sense of Duty, to avail themselves of information to enable them to proceed against, and render liable, Colonel Beaumont for the Payment of the Poor Rates  I am etc		MM
