          In Berwick upon Tweed


	I received your Letter of the 6th instant too late yesterday to answer it by that Post - As to the Counter parts of the Leases it will be impossible now to produce them at the Sale, for Mr Forster, who is with you, has the Lease of the Land at Wallington and the Lease of the Colliery is too cumbersome to send by the Post - Mr Bell has I suppose by this time given you the Survey of the Estate made some Years ago for we have not been able to get one made according to the present Improvements - I think it would be right if you would let me have the Bonds of Arbitration between Sir Walter Blackett & Mr Armstrong about Canny & hobs hole Fisheries with Mr Forsters Award.                                  I am etc        H Richmond
