Messrs Bell & Ruddock						Farnacres 26th Febry 1794


       I have been w[i]th Mr Heron who recommended Our note being carried over to Acc[oun]t of the new Tyne Bank. I afterw[ar]ds waited upon Mr Ormston and after conversing with him some time I found that the new Bank w[oul]d not take our Note because they had determined not to accept of Notes payble on demand. The matter being thus circumstanced & I having no wish to press the new Bank to take the Note, the only thing asked for by me was being allowed till Midsummer for payment of the Note & Interest to the old Bank & I think from what Mr Ormston said it is probable that will be agreed to. I have therefore no doubt you will take care to put the Commissioners for the Division etc of Hexhamshire and Allendale Common upon <d[elivery] o[f]> the needful to obtain Money, in Time, in the first instance to enable them to discharge the Note for £600 with all Interest which shall be due at the Time of taking it up and to deliver the Note to us, and in the next to pay tow[ar]d expences of the Surveying etc.   I am in haste

       Gent[leme]n Your very h[um]ble Serv[an]t

       Nich Walton Junr
