To Collingwood Forster Esq[uir]e                                         Newcas[tle] 23rd December 1766     

at Alnwick

Sir        I have this day sent you by Fairbairn the Alnwick carrier the abstract of Sir W[alte]r Blacketts title to the Tithes of wool and lamb in Ilderton parish which he writes me your desire to have. So you may either draw the conveyance to Capt[ai]n Roddam, with a covenant only from Sir W[alte]r for peaceable possession; or else in the manner that Mr Selbys was done. But as Ilderton Tithes are all let together till Mayd[a]y 1768 a little variation, in that respect, from Mr Selbys Deed will be necessary & therefore I have sent you also a copy of a deed of sale, lately made, of a part of the Tithes of this parish to Mr Robert Ilderton; with a copy of a Letter of Attorney from him impowering Sir Walter to receive the rents till that time.

You will please to return me these things as soon as you have done with them. I am etc   HR
