I beg you will accept my best thanks for this public demonstration of your favour, of which I shall ever retain a grateful remembrance; I trust no one can suspect that I am blinded by prejudice or influenced by private Interest when I declare my decided dissent to the measure of the line of Road passing through the Seal. I have already given my reasons for it. Col Beaumont & I will never join any Party to deprive the respectable Inhabitants of Hexham of the antient Privileges they have been indulged with, & which I sincerely hope they will long enjoy. Allow me Gentlemen to wish you a good morning, for I am proceeding in great haste to join my family at Bretton Hall.

Hexham October 4. 1823
