Mr Thos Fenwick Dipton

I beg to enclose copy of a Letter received this morning from Dr Phillpotts and as he therein states that Mr Dolphin is fully empowered to treat for his Tithe Ore, I hope you will be enabled to take an early opportunity of appointing a meeting with Mr Dolphin for the purpose of our endeavouring to conclude an Agreement for the Lot and Tithe Ore due to the Bishop and Rector from Col Beaumont. – I am etc – MM

      Copy of Dr Phillpotts’s Letter


To M. Morrison					Stanhope 27 May 1826

Dear Sir

I arrived at Stanhope on Wednesday, but have not been able to see Mr Dolphin till today. He is obliged to go from home on Monday, but will return in the middle of the week. – If you will address a Letter to him at Ruffside House Hexham, he will meet you at any time and place which you may appoint. He is fully empowered to treat for me, and I will fulfil any agreement he may make for my Tithe of Lead Ore due from Col & Mrs Beaumont. I conclude that before that time Mr Fenwick will have received his final instructions from the Bishop of Durham, I heartily wish that he and Mr Dolphin may settle some plan, by which one or other may be enabled to treat with you for both the Bishop and myself. I am etc  Hy Philpotts
