Mr Walton Junr begs leave to name to Mr Ruddock that he thinks no time sh[oul]d be lost in applying to Mr Beaumont to ride the Boundaries of Hexhamshire and Allendale Commons. It is a great pity to have lost so fine an opportunity as there  has lately been the Weather never having been more fit than for some time past. Mr Walton has the pleasure to inform Mr Ruddock that the Grindon Langley South Common and Thorngrafton Acts have had the Royal assent.
