To Mr Wm Peters Hexham 23d May 1776 Dear Sir Having had some conversation with Mr Tweddell of Unthank and been shewn by him a Copy of an Information made by Mr Lowis of Darlington by which Fenwick Martin appears to have been at Darlington when the Damage was done at Langley Mill this with other Circumstances inducing us to suppose Martin to have been unjustly accused we have thought it necessary to Write to Mr Ord of Morpeth intimating our wish that Martins confinement may be more lenient than it is at present for as we understand he is now confined in the Dungeon every Night. As soon after you come from London as your convenience will admitt of it we must beg to see you here to consult with you what it may be proper to do further herein. And are Yours &c W & S PS If you cannot come here before the 29th inst we must desire you will write to us fully directed to the Red Lyon in Penrith and acquaint us with the Directions you have rece’d in London respecting this business.
Peters was the Greenwich Hospital’s court keeper for the manors in Northumberland and Durham
