                                                  Hexham  24th. Decer.     1799


      Some few Years ago the Property mentioned in the inclosed Notice was lying unoccupied.   I applied to your Agent, Mr Bell to take it to farm and was accepted as a Tenant at the Rent it had been formerly let at.   I have since carried it on to some Advantage to the Country and myself, during which time every Concern of yours has been treated with the Preference of Supply, and every possible Respect.    Not knowing any particular Reason why I am not permitted to continue Tenant, I take the Liberty of mentioning the Subject to you; but if it is your Pleasure, or Convenience that requires it, I have only to beg that you will excuse this Trouble, and am Sir,

                                     Yr very obedt Servt

                                          Nich   Ruddock

Mr Bell has been so obliging as to say to me, it was done by Mr Alderman Blacketts Orders; but I have reason to believe it was so at Mr Isaac Hunters Instance
This letter appears to be the one John Bell told Col Beaumont to expect in his letter of 11 Dec 1799
