	You will receive herewith by the Alnwick Carrier the Dra.ts of the Conveyance & Assignment from Sir Walter & Mr Darwin to you and Mr. Russell your Trustee - & also a Description of the premises to be conveyed, all which I received from you in Febry last & laid directly before Mr. Fawcett for his perusal.  I only got them from him last Week since which I thought it proper to consult Mr. Ralph Forster who knows the premises - You will see Mr. Fawcett has made an Alteration in your description of the premises by scoring out in Two places what he thinks improper.  For Sir Walter claiming no Tithe in the premises but Corn Tithe ought not to mention any other in his Conveyance.

	You may if you please let the Deeds be engrossed directly according to this Description as altered by Mr. Fawcett    and Sir Walter, who is here now, will execute the same                                                                        I am etc  HR
