T. H. Faber Esqr - Bishop Auckland.

I last night on my return from Stanhope had the pleasure of receiving your Letter of the 3rd inst. – The payments to Messrs Coutts & Co for the Bishop of Durham’s Account is this day ordered – namely £1000 immediately the amount of a ¼th of years Composition for Lot Ore due on the 25 June last and so on quarterly at the periods stated in your Letter. In making the offer of £4200 p[er]ann[um] for the Lot Ore after the present Agreement for 3 Years, I did so in consequence of his Lordship expressing a desire for an Agreement during his Incumbency and also to avoid the necessity of making another. – Under existing Circumstances and the consequences that may arise out of them, it does not appear to me that Col Beaumont will have much inducement to increase the amount of the present payment. It has on former occasions been customary for the Bishops Secretary to prepare the Agreement for Lot Ore, which, if the Custom is continued, I will with pleasure conform to. – etc am etc -	MM
