Sir     Your Favour of the 5th inst. I received this Evening at my return from Newbiggin where I have been for a few Days.  I observe what you say as to the Application that has been made to you to enter into a Treaty for your Tythe Ore; Rather than the Ore should be separated which probably might be attended with unpleasant Circumstances to both Parties I take upon me, on the part of Coln. Beaumont to agree to your Proposal to compound for the whole of your Tithe Ore on the Terms that you mention (Viz.) Fifteen Hundred Pounds per Annm. during your Possession or Enjoyment of the Rectory of Stanhope; Payable as described in your late Agreement, to take place from the 11 July last; Should this meet with your Approbation shall the same Form of Agreement be prepared & sent to you, & a counter part of the same to Coln. Beaumont, or would you have Mr. Williamson employed.           I am etc J. E. B.
