Dear Sir,

I got your letter on the 10th of this, and immediately set off for Hexham, & shall be much obliged to you to let me know whether it is necessary I shall come home immediately and what the Money comes to, I am to pay, as Sir Thomas is not at home, if it is to be paid immediately I must have an order from him on Mr. Noble, the sooner the business is over the better and I will set off the next day after I get yours if it is necessary. I am glad Mr. Cotton has payed his Money. I don’t recollect any papers you gave me sealed up unless they were given you by Mr. <Ellott>, if they were, Bent has settled about some of them and myself the rest. I am glad my horses look so well, it is of no consequence their <milling> their tails – Mrs. Beaumont desires her Compliments – 

I am Dear Sir
