Mr Thomas Emerson New House				Newcastle 21 November 1807


      I have your letter of the 17 instant and consider it essentially necessary that you should attend the Meetings proposed to be held for the division of Middlehope Common, and that Colonel Beaumont has been exempt from all expense of damage of ground in the Working of the Mines hitherto by Acts of Parliament of a similar nature, that he will not consent to be now liable , and unless a clause be inserted in the intended Bill to that effect he will certainly give it every opposition in his power.

	I have considered the proposal you made when Mr Cockshutt was in the Country, to take 4/6 per shift for conveying the Work out of the Mines by Levels & <Whinneys> and that price not appearing unreasonable you will charge the same & give information to the other Agents.

	I am etc MM
