[at head in differnet hand, probably a later archivist’s:]To Mr Tweddle Cav[endish] Sq. Feb 4th 1800 D[ea]r Sir, Persuaded from what I have heard that you have just cause to be dissatisfied with Mr Scruton’s conduct in the Weardale inclosure bill of last year, yet I think you will not permit that consideration to render you hostile to that which is in agitation this: I am myself far from being pleased with Mr Scruton on the same ground. My own complaints however, <are> and permit me to hope that your’s also will be forgot in support of the public benefits which will result to the Country if the proposed plan takes place in all it’s parts. To give it real efficacy schools and a chapel must be erected and endowed. Without them the lower classes of the people in that district will never be what they should be Christians on principle: contented with their lot and useful in their humble sphere. I beg that you will present my comp[liments]: to Mrs & Miss Tweddell, and believe me etc S[hute] D[unelm]
Arthur Mowbray advised the Bishop (in a letter of 30 Jan 1800) to write this letter to Mr Tweddell to try and gain his support for the Enclosure.
