                                                                               Hexham Abbey   18th  Fbry  1803


      on Tuesday last I had an Interview with Mr. Raines the Slate Merchant who furnished the Slates for the Abbey and I have settled with him for the Slates and Slaters Work to be done at the Chancel of Hexham Church at 6s -10d the Square Yard if you come to a Resolution of putting a Slate Roof upon it instead of a Lead one

      Lord and lady Winchester in a little time will have to wait upon you and Mrs. Beaumont  I believe, as Lord and Lady of the Regality of Hexham for you to take a Surrender of an Estate in Wall from them in which Lady Winchester's late Father was interested in as Mortgagee

      I only mention this Matter to you to appraise you such a Thing is to be done lest they should come upon you unawares but my Son William will come along with them when the Business is to be transacted as he alone in London is acquainted with the Mode of transacting it 	I am Sir Your Faithful and obed.Sert.

                            John Bell
