Farnacres 20th June 1793 Dear Sir I wrote to you yesterday in great hurry, as I co[ul]d barely have time to save the Post. As we are to wait upon Mr Beaumont, I sh[oul]d be glad you w[oul]d inform yourself, whether we are to be at liberty to make any, and what, use of such information as Mr Bell has been so obliging as give, respecting the riding of the Boundaries of Hexhamshire and Allendale Common. We certainly ought to be very delicate, in any, & every, thing which may have come from him in confidence, and I am therefore desirous of being informed, how we ought to conduct ourselves as to that, for tho’ I am very anxious to bring the matter home to Mr Beaumont, I w[oul]d not say anything w[hi]ch in its consequence might involve Mr Bell in a difficulty w[i]th him. It is necessary we sh[oul]d have a full consideration upon the business, and I beg you will Dine with me tomorrow* and afterwards take a Bed at Farnacres. I am Dear Sir Your obliged h[um]ble Serv[an]t Nich Walton Junr PS I attended a meeting of the Lobley hill Road on Monday last at w[hi]ch we <rescinded> the order of appointment of Surveyors at £25 p[er]ano each and reappointed them <Fenwick> at £40 & <Ska…. > at £30 They cannot do without each a horse!
