	Yours of the 30thof last Month I received and am sorry to hear that it has been reported to the Bishop that my Father or I am so much adverse to the intended Division in this Country, as we don’t expressing our sentiments fully on that subject to any one but your self & Mr <Heron>. Mr Harding was here wishing to hear what we thought expecting the same when my father told him that he feared that it w[oul]d injure the working of the mines if Damage was to be paid in the New Inclosures. Mr Heron is in possession of all the information that we can give respecting what clause would be proper to insist in regard to preserve Colonel Beaumonts rights if an act be got for the above Division. I shall procure you some game against the 20th Inst.

I shall be in Newcastle on the 17thin order to wait upon you for the Sunday Morning when if you please I should have 1650£. You’ll receive Two Brace of Birds herewith which you’ll please to accept.

	Yours Sir  Your mo ob Servt  Tho Emerson Jun
