Dear Sir

       I thank you for your last favor of yesterday and am glad to see that no doubt is entertained respecting the obtaining a sufficient number of Names to come up to three Quarters of the amount of the whole of the Rentals in Hexhamshire and Allendale. I have thought it necessary to send you a Letter to Mr Ibbetson as well as Mr Everest. I have acquainted Mr I with the object of your journey and that you will hope to have his assistance in procuring the attendance of such Members of Parliament as are connected with Greenwich Hospital and be glad to consult with him as occasion may require concerning that or any other necessary matter which may arise. Mr Ibbetson is Secretary to the Board of G Hospital & lives at the further end of Spring Gardens next the Park. I have also mentioned to Mr Everest the intention of your Journey and that I am satisfied you will be happy to do every thing in your power along with him to have the busyness got as readily thro’ the two Houses of  Parliament as possible and that as the Session is expected to be A short one I doubt not every thing will be ready on the part of the Hospital when you see Mr Everest and that the Hospitals consent in form is absolutely necessary & this has been already intimated to the Board of Directors.

       I heartily wish you a good Journey and happy return & am Dear Sir Yours sincerely

       Nich Walton Junr


I intend writing to Messrs Ibbetson & Everest by tomorrows Post & will mention y[ou]r coming Pray don’t forget the Poor Parsons power of charging their allotments with the Expence of the Division. I think the Clause will do but I beg you & our friend Everest will make it clear if you sh[oul]d not think it is so in its present form. I am far from well of the broken Skin but I will attempt the Boundary next week and hope I shall be able to get that matter settled. Pray let one of y[ou]r Clerks drop me a line after the Bill arrives with sufficient Signatures.

Ra Heron Esq
