Messrs I Griffiths & Son Sol[icito]r Durham


I am favoured with your letter of the 9 Inst & if in another poor Rate to be made this Month by the Vestry of Stanhope, one, is made against the Rector for Tithe Ore; You will of course lodge another Appeal against this & the other Rates made between the last and next Sessions. On my return last Saturday I wrote to Mr Geo Crawhall Newhouse Weardale, to receive your directions & to give all the information, in his power, to your enquiries. I have not since heard from him, but in consequence of your Letter I again wrote to him yesterday. – I have seen Mr Williamson & perused the Copy of his Opinion, & am confirmed in my Opinion of the necessity of proceeding with the Appeal – if the Vestry persist – in Mr Hardinges name –
