Mr John Bell Hexham Abbey                                                 Newcastle  23rd  June   1799

Dear Sir     

      I received yours with an Extract of Lord Carlisle’s Admittance to his Estates at Stanhope, with a Skitch of the Mines which I have delivered to Mr. Emerson for his Information etc.

      I observe by the inclosed that Col. Beaumont’s Income Tax after the Abatement allowed for Children amounts to £1260 the first Payment of which being £210.  I have inclosed you Surtees & Burdons Order for that Sum, & I have desired Col. Beaumont to inform me if he would have those Payments continued or the Remainder paid into the Bank of England in one Payment.

      I had a letter yesterday from Col. Beaumont who would leave London on Sunday for Bretton & come North soon after.  I have lately been in better Health & my Daughter & little Girls are pretty Well.                      I am etc  J E B
