       On the 10th of next Month a Meeting is intended at Lowbyer to take into consideration the making of the Roads Turnpike from Burtryford to Alston, from Alston to Mere Burn, and from Alston to Burnstones, by authority of Parliament and to enter into a Subscription for carrying the above Propositions into effect we are desirous to have you to attend at Lowbyer as it is probable you will be requested to take care as to the application to Parliament in case the business or any part of it sh[oul]d go forward. Mr Allgood Hunter will be  proposed as Clerk and has our good wishes.

       We are rather surprised never to have heard from you since the Damages were settled at Nattrass. We are

       Sir Your very h[um]ble serv[an]t
