Peter Hunter  Esq.                                                            Newcastle   23rd   April  1799


Sir            I received your letter of the     inst. It will not be convenient for me to attend the Meeting on the 26 inst. I do not apprehend that the placing a Gate at High Team on the Hexham Turnpike road south of Tyne will materially affect Col. Beaumont’s Concerns on which account I can not recommend his giving the Clause in the proposed Bill his opposition. 

                                                  I am etc. J E B
