Mrs Beaumont Bretton Newcastle 25th October 1820 Madam I herewith transmit copy of a letter to & from Mr Phillpotts. His rejection of the offer of £4000, & the manner of doing it, leaves no room for hope, I fear, that a further offer of £500 more would induce him to enter into an Agreement; rather on the contrary induce him to be more tenacious in adhering to his most unreasonable demand; and which if acceded to by you, will be used as a precedent in future Agreements for

The Revd Hy Phillpotts Durham Newcastle 31st October 1820 Sir I am by this morning’s post favoured with your letter of yesterday’s date; and if I have not referred to the estimation of Value of your Tythe Ore & the deductions you had made therefrom, it was because in our conversations I had before urged that it could only be upon Compo[sition]s with the Bishop and Rector for the Lot & Tythe Ore that the Weardale Mines could be worked to advantage by the Lessee; and also that
