Dear Sir,

      I inclose herewith a draft of my intended letter to Mr Scruton as Solicitor of the Weardale Inclosure Bill. Should any parts of it appear to Mrs Beaumont & you to require explanation I shall be very in waiting upon you to give it. If the outline which I have sketched meets your joint approbation you will have the goodness to signify it to your agents, & to express a wish that they would convey to your dependents in Weardale your concurrence in the general plan of the Bill.

      Mrs B’s very sensible suggestion respecting the schools will certainly be attended to when they come to be established

      I do not mean to forward my letter to Mr Scruton till I know your sentiments.

      If I can be of further service to Mrs B. & you in relation to The Hexham Clerk <concerning> this subject <which persuasion> has lead me to consider you will command me

      I am etc

      S[hute] D[unelm]

[annotated at foot:]
