My Lord

      I am truly sorry that I sho[ul]d have neglected to send the Bedlington return, how it had escaped my notice I cannot account.

      Mr Castle told me yesterday that their is one, or two, very great mistakes in the drawing of the last Landtax Act, in one Instance, they have mistaken on Set of Commissioners for the other and that a new Act will be necessary.

      Our Landtax Letters have comed slowly in of late. I have some thoughts of advertising to desire than [those] that have not, will without further loss of time give their answers.

      I am my Lord your lordships ob[edient] & obl[iged] very h[um]ble servant

      Arthur Mowbray

TheHon[ora]ble & Rt Revd the Lord Bishop of Durham
