John Ibbetson Esqr						Newcastle 14th May 1801


	We inclose you an Estimate of the Expence of Repairing the Housing at Scremerston which it is proposed shall be gone in hand with and finished as soon as possible after receiving the Boards Commands.

	We also inclose you our Cash Accot for the Month of April upon which there is a Balance of £3890.18.8 in favor of Greenwich Hospital and we shall by Saturdays Post make Mr Bate a remittance of £300; our Contingent Account from 21 November to and with 28 February last is likewise inclosed.

	By the inclosed Cash Accot the Board will observe that the Purchase of Turfhouse Copyhold has been completed and you are desired to acquaint the Directors that an exchange has taken place between the two Tenants which promises being very advantageous to Greenwich Hospital; but it will be proper for the Tenants to surrender their present Leases and to have new Leases granted them, which we will take care to attend to.

	You will be pleased to acquaint the Board that the General Award for the Hexhamshire and Allendale Division was Inrolled at the last Easter Sessions for the County of Northumberland, which finished that Business. We are Sir  

      Your most obedt Servt

		Walton & Turner
