Dr Phillpotts (of Stanhope) at Durham. 

I am this morning favored with your Letter of yesterdaysdate. – West Allen high Chapel (the name of the Chapel requiring consecration) is about seventeen miles from Stanhope and from the Chapel to Hexham Is nearly the same distance. Mr George Crawhall will be prepared to attend the Bishop of Oxford and conduct his Lordship by the best road through the Country, and also will transmit to the resident Clergyman such directions as you may be pleased to favor him with. – I am apprehensive that his Lordship will not be able to proceed in a Carriage beyond the Summit of Killhope on the Alston Road, where Saddle Horses, if wanted, will be in readiness to carry his Lordship and attendants down West Allen to Whitfield, and where the Carriage going round by Alston, can meet him and go on to Hexham. 

I am etc MM
