Mr George Selby - Attorney at Law In Alnwick                                     Newcas   15th May 1775



	I received your Letter that Mr Selby is desirous of having the Lease of Unthank Colliery delivered him which he certainly should have had before this if Sir Wr Blackett had obtained the Arrears due from the Tenants of the Colliery & which he cannot yet prosecute them for without the help of this Lease.  We have got half of the Debt & as soon as we get the rest the Lease shall be sent you - in the mean time it shall be ready to attend any occasion Mr Selby shall have for it & as he has an attested Copy I hope no inconvenience will arise to him while we find it necessary to reserve the Lease.              I am etc    HR
