Mr B		May 9th 1821

I sent a Pini on the 1st the last which will be ripe until August.  Would you wish any young rabbits or leveretts to be sent.  I met Mr Thomas yesterday at Hexham where he informed me that Mrs Beaumont has given him directions to receive from me the sum agreed upon to be paid out of the Bywell rental.  In the statement sent, the expense of repairing the mill is stated to be paid by Mrs Beaumont but Mr Thomas now seems doubtful of this and supposes Mrs B may not allow any expenses except the fence walls on Bromley Fell.
