	As Mayday is at hand it will be expected from us that we give answers to Such as have made offers to take the Tyths of Whelpington Hartburn & Midford, we have therefore below enumerated the Severall Biddings for each & begg the determination of the Directors thereupon as Speedily as you can.

	You will observe the Severall Offers any of whom we believe might be verry good Tennants, but as we would have a regard in letting of any of this Estate to Persons capable of Supporting an Interest for the present Governmt wee begg leave to recommend Mr Delaval as a Gentn Zealously affected & tho he has not offered so much as another person we doubt not but he will give as much as any for Whelpington.  Mr Lumsden of Morpeth is also a person of an undoubted good Character & Zealously affected to the present Governmt he is as as good an offer as any other Person.
