To Mr John Cross in Leeds                     Newcastle       12th March 1765


Sir 	 Sir Walter Blackett has agreed to let Mr Fenwick have three hundred pounds in further part of his and Mr Peareths bond for £2000 on the 12 of May next. But previous to this there must be an Endorsement made upon the Bond, and another upon Mr Fenwicks assignment of it to Mr Wood, in the same form as those you made last year on the payment of the 500.

Mr Fenwick proposes calling upon you to do this, and Sir Walter desires you will take the trouble of it, and of letting me know as soon as it is done. Sir Walter came hither last Tuesday, made Mr Blackett an Alderman on Wednesday and sate out again for London on Thursday. He was very well; I hope you are so. I am etc Hen Richmond.
