To Mr John Bell at Mr Ellis’s in                              Newcas[tle]  27th April 1765


Sir       Upon second thoughts it appears to me the best way for you to publish the Tolls to be let against the 12th May next; & then if nobody will give more than what W[ilia]m Robson has bid for them I do not doubt but Sir Walter will give him the preference. However I have wrote to Sir Walter by this post for his directions: only in the mean time, if you see no objection to it, I think they should be called. I am etc   Hen Richmond
