To John William Bacon Forster Esq[uir]e at                               Newcas[tle] 1st June 1764

Newton Cap by Durham

Sir      In June last I gave Mr Rutter the Acco[un]t of your proportion of Weardale Rents etc for the year 1762 ; & on the other side you now receive the Acco[un]ts for the year 1763. The former was £126.5s.9d & this is £132.10s.2d. I hope you will please to order both sums to be paid soon, for there always used to be great punctuality observed in these payments ; & I believe I need not assure you that the B[isho]p & Rector allow Sir W[alte]r Blackett very little credit, but call upon him early in every half year for their money. I am etc       H R
