To Mr Christ[ohe]r Johnson Attorney at Law                     Newcas[tle] 1st January 1765

In Durham

Sir      On the 8th Ultim I wrote you desiring you would search for the surrenders of two Estates in the Manor of Wolsingham belonging to Sir W[alte]r Blackett and gave you the particulars: But as I have not had any answer to that Letter I give you the trouble of this to acquaint you that Sir Walter Blackett is now here and desires to know whether you can meet with the surrender from Dr Smith of the parcels at Woodcroft, or no? this surrender being more immediately wanted than the other. I hope you will favour me with an answer by the return of the post if possible. I wish you many happy years & am etc  Hen Richmond
