Dear Sir

      It has been intimated to me that many of the Proprietors of Lands in Weardale are desirous of an inclosure. The idea meets with my fullest approbation from a conviction that the greatest benefits will result from the carrying it into execution both to the individuals concerned, and to the County at large from bringing into cultivation such an extent of unproductive soil. I should hope that it will appear to you and Mrs. Beaumont in the same light. If it does, you will have the goodness to signify to me your consent to the division as a general measure; not binding yourself to any specific terms, wch. may be adjusted in the prosecution of the Commission.

      Mrs. Barrington’s best compliments accompany mine to Mrs. Beaumont and yourself.

      I am, Dear Sir, Etc

      S D

Colonel Beaumont
