John Ibbetson Esq.					Farnacres 24th March 1792


      On the 28th September last we gave the Board reason to think that parts of the Hexhamshire and Allendale Common would be sold for defraying Expences of obtaining an Act carrying the Division into execution and it was so at first intended but upon a careful examination of the improveable parts of the Common it was the opinion of the Persons who made the examination that no part could be sold without causing inconvenience to the Proprietors & in those sentiments, having been joined by the generality of the Owners of Estates intitled to Common of Pasture; it has been determined not to sell any of the Common, which we are now satisfied in very proper.

      Mr. Heron who is employed as Sollicitor in the application to Parliament sets out, as we expect, tomorrow morning at Six o’clock for London. We are

      Sir Your most Obedt. Servts.

      Walton & Turner
