To  Mr John Grey   Attorney at Law                                           Newcas.   9th  Novr.  1771

         In Berwick upon Tweed 

Sir      If Messrs. Stow Boreham & Douglass will pay you the One hundred pounds & the six pounds seven Shillings upon the delivery of the receipts to them for the part of the principal Money due on Sir Wr. Blackett’s bond to Messrs. Collingwood and Wilkie (for the benefit of Thos. & William Armorer) & for the Int’rest to the 30th Octo[be]r last Sir Wr. Blackett will allow the same in part, of Their Rent due to Him for Unthank Colliery.  & you may give them this Letter for their Satisfaction if they will do so.  they are the only Tenants that I can expect to pay these Sums  -  And if they will not do it, the only alternative is for you to send me the receipts by the post and I will send a London Bill made payable at as short a date as possible to you or whoever you direct me to make it payable to.  This was what I proposed in my Letter of the 18th Sept. 1770,  & I am not blameable for any delay or inconveniences that may have happened by Mrs Armorer & her friends non observance of it.   I must have proper Vouchers when I pay Money & am only sorry you should have had so much trouble in the Affair.
