Mr John Bell Hexham Abbey                                          Newcastle    14th April 1796


Dear Sir	I had a Lre from Mr Beaumont yesterday, himself & family were in good health; he desires that at the Head Court day you will give the prisoners in Hexham Goal two or three Guineas, as they may be in number that it may be laid out for them in provisions etc at your discretion; he ordered those in Morpeth Goal five Guineas; he takes no notice of the time he will be down, but says that the prospect of a Peace, is vanished for the present, which I am sorry to find.  I am very glad to hear that Mr Emerson is do much recovered & I have great hopes that with care he may continue some time, for he is an honest valuable Agent.  I hope that you may have good Weather for holding the Courts in the West.

                                                                             I am with Compliments etc        J.E.B
