The Revd Henry Phillpotts Durham			Newcastle 2nd Novemr 1820


I am favored with your letter of yesterday’s date; and that I may Contribute by every means within my power to promote an Agreement between you and Col Beaumont, I do not object to your shewing, the Statement which I delivered to you, to Mr Fenwick, who I shall be happy to meet here [struck out: tomorrow] this evening if it suits his convenience to come. – The words you impute to me respecting the  Dean & Chapter’s Mine, I certainly did not use: I observed , as far as my Recollection serves, that the duty exacted by that Body was more encouraging to the adventurer than that mentioned by you, but that I spoke of it ‘in terms of strong Commendation of its liberality’ I cannot conscientiously admit, or that the observation should be applied to the Bishops Mines when the Account of the enormous expenditure in working them has been laid before you, and which if adverted to is sufficient I should presume to remove from your mind all uncertainty on the subject.
