I write to give you the earliest Intimation of my having accepted an appointment so much more advantagious than what I hold under Col. Beaumont that I cod. not consistent with my own Interest refuse it and to say that on Monday the first February I shall transmit to Newhouse such Documents belonging to the Col. as are in my Possession, the urgency of my Presence at my new avocation does not allow me to continue it longer in Weardale and therefore you will be pleased to give such Directions as you may think expedient.

                                 I am Sir with Respect Your Obedt. Servt.

                                                      Lanct Allgood

Durham Jany 29. 1802.
