Rd. Beaumont Esq. the 1st August next to the Lord Bishop of Durham , with 1s/2d for Acquitance & Duty. Please to send a receipt for the same. I am etc J E B I was very much surprised to find that a Part of a Clause in the Printed Bill for the Dividing the Moors & Stinted Pastures in Weardale (which Clause was agreed to at the General Meeting of the Proprietors) has been left out in the Bill Viz: (Fo. 32) “And that without Paying any Damage or making any satisfaction whatsoever for so doing.” This Omission appears to have been by design and I think that Mr Scruton is highly blameable and that he has treated the Lord Bishop of Durham and his Lessees very ill Mr Williamson is of the same opinion. £75. 1 . 2 No. 7424 Newcastle upon Tyne July 15th 1799 No 29 Forty days after Date pay to the Order of J E Blackett Esq.
