Mr. Everest 						Farnacres 19th March 1792

Dear Sir

       By the Mail Coach which sets out from Newcastle this morning I send you a copy of the Bill intended to be presented to Parliament this Session for Dividing parts of Hexhamshire and Allendale Commons and Stinting the remainder. It is directed to the care of Mr Holmes 156 Strand and I must beg you will call for it. I hope you will find it tollerably accurate and that with the additions in pencil which are also noted in the margin with red Ink and leaving out the words struck thro[ugh] with red Ink it will answer the intended purpose. The Clause for settling the Boundary between the Barony of Langley and the Regality of Hexham will with the proposed alterations in pencil and leaving out the words scored under for the reason mentioned in the Margin will I hope be quite sufficient. The Ditch is not yet cut but will I expect be finished next week. After you have perused the Bill I shall be glad to hear from you and I flatter myself few if any alterations will be necessary.

       The sessions will I fear be short & the sooner the Bill is got Thro[ugh] the Committee the better. Youll be so good as name to the Board our sending you the Bill for the Division. Mr Heron will I expect be in London next week and if you sh[oul]d judge any alteration to be necessary I wish you to write them down upon a paper referring to the Bill till you see him and as most of the intended alterations in pencil are of his own writing it w[oul]d be well to let them stand as at present till you can be together upon the busyness. I am satisfied there will be no occasion for any one but yourself to attend for Greenwich Hospital except Members and when wanted you will muster as many as you can I doubt not. Where the <direction> of the Bill does not suit your ideas I beg leave notwithstanding that no alteration may be made provided the intention of it is answered as it stands. Little stops in a Committee where time is precious may be great inconvenience & lose the Bill.

       <Please> excuse me and believe that I am Yours faithfully

       Nich Walton Junr
