John Ibbetson Esqr						Newcastle 12th January 1801


	By the Mail Coach of this Day, you will receive a Parcel, which contains a Copy of the General Award of the Commissioners who were appointed by Act of Parliament to divide Hexhamshire and Allendale Common. We think it would be proper for the Hospital to have a Copy of such parts of the Plan of Hexhamshire, as contains its Estates, and Allotments, and as that will not cost more than fifteen, or, at the utmost, sixteen Pounds, we recommend it to the Directors to have a Plan, to be lodged with the Copy of the General Award in the Record Room at Greenwich Hospital, but shall not order the Plan till we receive directions to do so. Great care has been taken, as much as possible to save Expence, by forming the Award, in as concise a manner, as possible, by means of Schedules, in consequence of which, it is shortened so much, as to be contained in ten Skins of Parchment, printed, instead of being engrossed, and we are satisfied, that if the Directors will be pleased to look upon the Schedules, they will see, that, every attention has been paid, not only to shorten the Award, but to make every thing as clear as possible.  We are Sir

      Your most obedt Servts	

      Walton & Turner
