Foundling, 26 Dec. 1798 My Lord, I am very glad that the Weardale Negotiation carries a better appearance; when there is so much magnitude of Object, so much Intricacy, & so many little Prejudices & Interests at work, it is too much to expect even now that it will proceed without further Impediment. I am sorry that the Rector does not accede to what is both for his Interest & the general benefit. Perhaps he would not object to a Clause enabling him to agree with the Majority of the Common[er]s & Propr[ietor]s to an Allotm[en]t in lieu of his Tythes, if he shall think proper. The first of Febry. is not only our Election Day, but the day for the Meeting of the Society at large, to receive the Report & a Statem[en]t of the Account: so that if it is not inconvenient to your Lp & Mrs Barrington, the Presence of our President would be very desirable. I am with sincere respect & Esteem, Yr Lps obliged & faithful Servt. Tho. Bernard <Count> R is gone to Lord Palmerstons, & is going from thence to Bath.
