Sir      I am sorry I was abroad when you sent your Servant to enquire after the Lease and Release from Sir Wr. Blackett, which you say is wanting - but I hope you will find them soon.  however you did not leave them here, I assure you - I remember you asked your Son, as he was going out of my Office, if he had the Deeds.  & he showed you one Bundle which you said was not what you meant, he then produced another, which was the Release you are enquiring after.  

                         I am etc    HR
