John Ruddock Esq  Hexham

Mr Beaumont having been about on the Continent I have not been able to return an answer to the complaint made by Mr Watson and others of the damage to their land by the Allen Mill Chimney until now and as the application was conveyed through you, may I beg the favour that you will communicate Mr Beaumonts answer to the respective parties. Viz That as soon as the weatherwill allow immediate steps will be taken to remove the cause by extending the Chimney Flue on to the Fell. I have already commenced to search for <straw> and in a few days shall advertise the winning of the stones and cutting the line of Flue. I think this will be satisfactory to the Parties and convince them of Mr Beaumonts willingness to do all in his power to meet their wishes.

      I am dear Sir	Yours Truly

							Benj Johnson  
This letter is the last one in the ledger but is a long time out of sequence, the previous letter being dated February 1834
