John Ibbetson Esqr					Newcastle 23d Febry 1798


	In pursuance of an intimation from Mr Dyer an Agreement has been made with Mr John Dixonfor the Purchase of his Estate at Turfhouse, except two Acres of Common which it was known to us he had sold when we wrote to you upon the 30th Decemr last, and also except six Acres and twelve Perches of Common which he has sold since 30 December . The Purchase Money to be paid by the Hospital is £1000 so that Mr Dixon has abated £50 for the six Acres and twelve Perches which he has sold since our first writing to you upon this Subject. It certainly would have been more desirable to have purchased the 6 Acres & 12 Perches along with the rest but that is not of any consequence the main object as to the Purchase having been effected and a sufficient allowance made for the 6 Acres & 12 P.

An Abstract of the Title has been before Council and the Purchase shall be completed as soon as possible, as the Title is approved. We are

      Sir Your most obedt Servt

      Walton & Turner
