      Sherburn, 30th Decr. 1798.

My Lord,

      On my return from Weardale I told Mr. Castle that it would certainly be better that he, thro’ any Channel he pleased, should inform the Weardale people that he would not support the Wolsingham Attorneys in opposing the Bill; and, he then desired Muschamp, your Lordships Keeper, who was at durham, to inform the Rector of Stanhope and others, that he would not support them; leads me to hope he has Nothing to do in this advertising Business - Muschamp had been prevailed on to join in a Petition against Scruton and the Bill by those Attorneys Application, under an Idea that Castle was to be the Solicitor. I go tomorrow with Scruton to have a Consultation with Mr. Williamson at Newcastle and also to converse with Coln. Beaumont Agents that we may be ready and perfectly understand each other at the Reading of the Bill. _ I will attend to your Lordships Letter as to the Rector, and give every Assistance in my power to the Cause. _ In the course of this next Week your Lordship will have further Information on the Subject.

      I am, My Lord Your Lordships very much obld. & most obdt. hble Servt.

      Arthur Mowbray

The Honble & Right Revd The Lord Bishop of Durham
