Mr B.		July 13th 1827

I shall take care to provide six beds at Allendale town for yourself and friends in the 12th August which is on a Sunday.  I am extremely glad you are coming to the moors as I understand <Mr> Ruddock intends shooting without leave (he says at the seven springs) on the 12th.  He grounds his right to shoot from the <allotment>. he has upon the Common and says he is determined to try his right and would not accept leave if offered to him … The tradespeople who want accts of Mr Ge Bt are getting very troublesome.  It will require £1,000 to carry me on until Xmas.  Mr Lee sent me a bill for £100 to pay for the blood mares in Yorkshire which I have settled for and I expect they will be sent to York and sold.  There still remains accts to the amount of £500 and upwards to settle.
