Feb 9th 1821 I beg leave to enclose a summons I have just recd for your attendance as Foreman of the Grand Jury at the Newcastle Assize ... In case a tenant should offer for the Abbey and grounds would you allow him to let the long room for a ball room and for other public occasions. The drainage by the Fenwick tenants and others is going on to a considerable extent and answers to my most sanguine expectations. I expect to remove to Bywell in a week or ten days. Some of the young Pointers at <Chesters> have been found worrying sheep. I have taken down the stalls in the stable at Bradley and found the wood so bad that it cannot be put up again. As much as may got out of it as will make the present cowhouse into two boxes but the stable will require new wood. The paint inside of the house is very dirty would you wish the worst parts to be painted. The outside has all been painted by Miss Simpson.
