Dear Sir	I received your favour of the 9th Inst, & observe what you say respecting the Conveyance of the Estate lately agreed for in Allendale, & I am of opinion that both Freehold & Copyhold should be taken in the name of a Trustee for the reasons that you assign, & that you are the proper Person to be named on that occasion; & likewise to prepare the Purchase Deeds; when they are compleated, will it not be proper that Mr Williamson should peruse them?                                    I am etc   J.E.B

	I had a letter from Mr Beaumont the last post Mrs Beaumont, himself & the Children were perfectly well; He approves much of the Mode of Repair of the Chancel of Allendale Church that we agreed on etc.
