Mr Nich[ola]s Ruddock						Farnacres 16 June 1793

Dear Sir

       I have read your Letter very attentively and as Mr Beaumont did not favor us with an answer to ours respecting the riding of the Boundary of Hexhamshire and Allendale Common I sh[oul]d think that it w[oul]d be the most proper way to have a Personal interview with him upon the subject. I therefore desire you will think of some proper Persons of the Proprietors who it may be right to have to accompany you and I will certainly go along with you and them to Tinmouth or if you think you and I going together will do I shall be ready to attend you but Mr Beaumont sh[oul]d have some previous intimation and if you will name two or three days I will endeavour to get a time of meeting to suit some one of the Days and be glad to see you here the Day before in order that we may make up our minds as to
Last part of the letter is missing but it is assumed to be from Walton as usual
