To John Hudson Esqr at Bessingby near Burlington Yorkshire          Newca[stle] 30th Novr 1768


Inclosed is Barthw Kents note and receipt for the Carpet; which I paid him with the £6 18s 0d you left me for that purpose.

Lady Trevelyan desired me to take of her £1 4s 9d which you paid on her Daughters Acco[un]t and to remit it to you; & I have paid, by Mrs Hudson’s desire £4 10s 0d for some Cloth got of Mr Airey: so there is due to me £3 5s 3d which you may if you please send me a bill for on Mr Darwin: to whom I have wrote by Sr Wr Blacketts order to pay you the qua[rterl]y Annuity of £12 10s 0d which would have been due on the 5th October last if Sr Geo Trevelyan had lived so long.

Our Broker has not yet met with a Ship for Burlington; but by the first that offers he will return the Sacks, that the last Malt came in.

Please to acquaint Mr Trevelyan, when he arrives at Bessingby, where he says he will be soon, that I have sent his orders to his Servant, at Wallington; and have let him have ten pounds for the bill, as he desired me to do.

Sir Walter went from hence for London on Saturday last – he was very well – I hope Mrs Hudson, yourself and the young Ladies are so & am etc    HR
