T. H. Faber Esqr Bishop Auckland

In reply to your favor of the 29th Inst. I beg to inform you that I have given directions to Mr George Crawhall of New House in Weardale, to meet the Bishop of Durhams Agents and to arrange with them the attendance at the perambulation appointed by Lord Darlington. - For this purpose I recom[m]end that the Agents be at Chappel on Wednesday the 9 Aug where they will be met by Mr Crawhall and accompanied by him and other competent persons on the following morning to a situation between Crookbourn head and Scraith-head where the Bishops and Lord Darlington’s Manors join -The enrollments of former perambulations will perhaps be necessary to prevent Encroachments, if attempts are made. – Widdy Bank where the perambulation commences divides the boundarys of Lord Darlington and the late Lord Strathmore’s Manors. Mr Fenwick called at this Office on Saturday and I at once acceded to the terms offered by the Bishop of Durham for his Lot Ore. – namely to pay his Lordship £4000 p[e]rann[u]m for 3 years – a longer period would have been desirable, but after the very satisfactory reception I met with at the Castle, I could not allow myself to urge one word more for a prolongation of the term. – I did state to Mr Fenwick that as his Lordship had expressed the wish for an Agreement during his Incumbency that I would give £4200 after the expiration of the three years, in order that the business might be finally concluded and one Legal Instrument suffice; and which if his Lordship accedes to I am prepared to confirm. - etc am etc   MM
