I perceive by your affectionate Letter of the 4th that you was pleased to come too often to see me at London, Mr. Rushworth did tell me a munday morning you was pleased to come to see me upon Sunday, I shall never need anybody to believe any thing when when you tell me it is soe, I respect and esteem Sr Will Blackett soe much. God willing I intend to goe to Barwick, some time next month, but I will stay there noe longer then to informe myself with the Deficiencies of the Garrison that I may acquante his Maj.te wth them and I will goe in as few days as well I can upon my own horses and will goe as privet as I can and troble my frends as little as I can, it trobles me very much when I putt them to charge

I am affectionately your most faithfull serv


Wellbeck March the 20th 75

[on verso:] For my worthy friend Sr William Blackett Baronet att his house in Newcastle upon Tyne
