Mr Will[ia]m Collingwood Sol[icito]r  Alnwick		Newcastle 25th January 1808

I am favored with your letter accompanied with Voucher for disbursements on acc[oun]t of Colonel Beaumont’s Election. I have invested in the Accounts Sixty Five Guineas for your trouble with which I trust you will be satisfied, but as Mr Heron need money for the purpose of attaining the different professional Gentlemen employed in the Election, I expected that your fee had been paid at the commencement of the business to him therefore have the goodness to apply for the same. Above is a cheque for the Balance due to you a receipt for which be pleased to transmit by return of post to <Sirs>
