Mr Isaac Hunter                                                               NewCastle  26th May 1796


Dear Sir	I received your favour & approve much of what you recommend respecting the raising the level of the Water Race at Allen Mill, & I think that no time should be lost in carrying that matter into Execution.  The day of Election at Alnwick will (I believe) be on Thursday the 9th June, no Opposition is expected, but it would be well to be a little prepared, & to have as many of Mr Beaumont’s Friends to attend, as can with convenience do it

                                                                                          Yours etc   J.E.B
