Mr R Thorpe  Attorney at Law Alnwick			Newcastle 26 August 1808

I have rec[eiv]ed your Letter of the 24 inst enclosing one from Cuthbert Raine to the Rev[ren]d W Maughan complaining of having sustained damage in consequence of Col Beaumont working certain Lead Mines in his grounds. I can assure you every care has been and is taken by the Colonels agents to prevent injury to any person, by the construction of covered Conduits thro[ugh] the grounds where the water must unavoidably pass; From information obtained on the Spot I do not credit Raine’s assertions and judging from those contained in his Letter I am confirmed in the opinion of his facility in departing from the truth.

				I am etc MM
