Farnacres 16 Decemr 1793 Dear Sir I have the satisfaction to acquaint you that I am fully empowered to act for the Commissioners and Govrs of Greenwich Hospital respecting the Claims on the Hexhamshire and Allendale Common. I shall be happy to hear you are under similar circumstances. I am also authorised to Subscribe £300 towards the Road from Burtry Ford to Alston and from thence to Burnstones and am glad to hear that Mr Beaumont has agreed to subscribe £200 and I have no doubt we are obliged to you for your good Offices on the occasion. I am Dear Sir Your very hble Servt Nich Walton Junr PS I have taken Mr Williamsons Opinion relative to Persons making objections to Claims who is of Opinion that ten Objectors make the whole of the proprietors liable to pay expences of Litigation. It certainly will be right to have as many of the Principal Proprietors to attend the Meeting on the 30th as possible, tho’ Ten as objectors will do, and therefore, would it not be right to apply to the Principal Proprietors or at least such of them as it may be judged proper to have at the Meeting? As you know the several Persons who it is likely will be useful in giving information such as Joseph Watson John Johnson etc will you be so good as take the trouble of applying to all such and for your trouble and expence it will certainly be reasonable and proper that you should be paid by the Proprietors. Mr Heron will I expect attend the 3d Meeting. I wish to hear from you.
