I am etc J E B Arthur Mowbray Esq. Sir, Since my Annexed letter to you I have been favoured with your letter of the 16th Inst. I have been so much indisposed as to confine me to the house since I had the pleasure of seeing you at this place untill this morning when I had some discourse with Mr Williamson & Mr Bell called on me. Had I been in health I would certainly have attended the Meeting but in that case I could not have Acquiesced in the Question of a Division without there being an express Clause in the Bill that Col. Beaumont as Lessee under the Lord Bishop of Durham should not be subject to pay any Damages for Working etc in the Stinted Pastures. On that being consented to Col. Beaumont will not object to the Division & I shall acquaint his Agent at New House Mr Emerson with the same _ I am sorry to hear that Mr Shaftoe should Address the Meeting in such indecent & very improper terms _ As to Mr Wallace he is very troublesome but of very little consequence. I am etc J E B £75. 1 . 2 No. 6221 Newcastle upon Tyne January 17th 1799 Thirty days after Date pay to the Order of J E Blackett Esq. Seventy Five Pounds One Shilling & Twopence Mess.
