Dr Sir

	the 30th of Decr was the time of the Persisting etc and the two Months creep away - unless the Objectors to Mr & Mrs Beaumonts Claim withdraw the Objection I must commence the Action within the two Months - Joseph Watsons Name stands first and I think of making him Df[endan]t perhaps it woud be Right to commence the Action at all Events - and for me ‘amicably to name an Atty for the Df[endan]t and there let the Matter rest but this I only mean as a Measure to prevent any Lapse on either Side - it will be most advisable if the Matter can be settled that no hostile Steps shoud appear upon Record - speak to Mr Ruddock & give me your Thoughts

                    Yrs truly

                    Ralph Heron

NCastle 6 Feb 1794

<Thirston> & Grey have sent two Writs to Wilson - Beaumont at Clavering to which Appres are entered

I have heard nothing of the other Claimants - the Settling the Issues will be attended with much Nicety pray tell Ruddock that his Notice was this Day served on Watson

[On reverse:]

Mr Bell - Town Clerk Hexham
