John Erasmus Blackett, Newcastle


      I wrote you two letters but no ans[wer] have I rece[ive]d, I now take the liberty to trouble you with a third & shall be much obliged for your ans[wer] in the course of a few days for my future Government.

      Shou'd it be a concern worth your notice, & shou'd money be required to be advanced either now, or sometime hence I apprehend I can ans[wer] your Demands to your intire satisfaction.

      I am Sir your mo[st] Hum[ble] S[ervant]

      Chas Staples

[annotated in JEB’s hand:] ans[wered] 19th Nov
