To Mr. Chr. Bell.					Farnacres 15 Decemr 1776

Mr Bell

      I dare say you will recollect that I desired you to make some Enquiry about the Boundary joining Kingswood Estate in that part opposite to the Hag Bank and you gave me your Answer which I have, but in addition to that, I desire you’ll ask Mr. Wray a few Questions about this Boundary, for he will certainly remember whether they looked upon it Mr. Martyr had a right to all the Timber on the East Side of Allen, or not, and if they had a right to it, it is plain the Boundary was then considered to be the Allen Water, as I have no doubt of it, it ought to be.  You’ll give our Compliments to Mr. Wray, and any Enquiry you make, I desire you will do it without bustle.   I wish to hear from you soon and am 	Your &ca

      N.W. Junr.

P.S. Pray enquire & let me know whether Mr. Wilkin has ever been at Corbridge Surveying, and if he has, I desire to know how long he has been there in the whole.  Be very exact.
