To Mr Dan[ie]l Alder at Mountain

Near Alnwick                                                                 Newcas[tle] 31 Octo[be]r 1766

Sir       Inclosed I send you the acco[un]t of Mr Bacon Forsters proportion of Weardale rents, compositions for the last four years and hope it will be convenient to pay the amount of it soon, as Sir W[alte]r Blackett has occasion for money.

The Bishop and Rector are always very punctual in their calls upon Sir W[alte]r for these rents & compositions, as they become due half yearly; and it is hard that Sir Walter should lye so long out of Mr Forsters proportion of them. I am etc    HR
