Sir      Mr Ra. Forster, in pursuance of what passed when you and he were in my Office, has viewed the damage done by getting Stones for Hexham Bridge in Sir Ra. Milbanks Estate at Windyhirst which you asked £20 for and assures me he cannot make it amount to £10.  However Sir Walter Blackett being very unwilling to have any dispute with Sir Ra, about this Matter, will pay what Sir Ra. shall please under his own hand to say what he expects for the damage done on this Occasion.  You will be so good as get Sir Ra. Milbank to fix the Sum in the manner here desired as soon as you can & inclose it to me who am etc     HR
