    In Durham

Sir      I hope you will excuse the Difficultys I made of paying you the proportion of the Composition for the Lot Ore of Weardale Lead Mines, due to the late Bishop of Durham’s Ex[ecu]tors to the time of his Lordship’s Death, as it proceeded from Ignorance of the Right you have by Virtue of your Office to receive all Rents due upon this Occasion.   Having since my Letter of the 20th instant received Satisfaction upon this Subject I have here inclosed you such a Receipt as you desired and if you please to sign and return it by any person you think proper I shall readily pay the Money.  P.S.  you will please to insert the Date in the Receipt.  I am etc HR
