To Mr. John Grey  Attorney at law                                                      Newcas. 5th. Septr 1772

                              in Berwick upon Tweed


	Mr Lawson Armstrong is inclined to refer the Dispute about Canney Fishery & has wrote to his Friends in Berwick to advise him who is a proper person to be his Referee - Sir Wr. Blackett would wish to have Mr Lambert & desires you will give his Compliments and ask him if he will allow him to name him - Mr. Armstrong made some Objection to him as being Tenant of the opposite Fishery called Ether Mouth and it being his Interest to have the <Scars> in Dispute remain unoccupied but I suppose this trifling Objection will not be insisted on.  if it should pray who in your Opinion is the next proper person to be Sir Wr’s Referee in this Matter?  & would it not be the best way for the two Arbitrators to chuse an Umpire before they proceed to Business - I suppose a common Arbitration Bond will not do & therefore desire you will send me the Drat. of a proper one with the penalty that should be inserted and any other particulars that you think necessary                              I am etc                  HR
