Dear Sir

	I got here about three Quarters of an Hour ago and am come on purpose to examine into the Claims wch have been made in consequence of obtaining the Act for Dividing Allotting and Inclosing Hexhamshire and Allendale Common along with any others who might think proper to join in that examination.  This matter was hinted by me to Mr Ruddock soon after the second meeting of the Commissioners and tho’ I did not desire Mr Ruddock to give notices to any body I really cod not help thinking, as I knew he had no objection to such a Meeting as I have mentd above, that he wd have made it known to some of the Proprietors and that he wd have intimated it to you in particular.  I however find that you have not been applied to upon the occasion till this Day which I own surprised me.  It is certain that none of us can wish to shew you the least disrespect and I hope you will notwithstanding the short warning favor us with your Company at the Black Bull tomorrow at Eleven o Clock

                                                      I am Dear Sir  Your most hbl S[ervt]

                                                                        Nich Walton Jun

[On reverse:] 

Mr John Bell/ Hexham Abbey
