Mr R Thorp Attorney Alnwick 				Newcastle 16th March 1809

      I am favored with your Letter of the 14th inst covering one from the Revd Mr Langhorn.  I am ready to allow compensation for any damage which can be proved to be done by the working of Col Beaumont’s Mines in the old enclosed  grounds; but something more than Mr Langhorn’s suppositions & opinions will be required to sanction a measure of this kind.   I <mean> to put an end to Mr Maughan’s complaints, Coll Beaumont’s agent in Weardale Mr Thos Emerson shall be instructed to meet any proper Person conversant with the subject whom Mr M. may appoint.
