To the Rev[eren]d Dr Sharp at Bambrough Castle

Near Belford                                                                     Newcas[tle] 12th Sept[embe]r 1766

Sir          Yesterday afternoon I received your Lre of the 7th instant; but having no orders yet about the sums you mention I shall write to Sir Walter Blackett about them tomorrow, and shall send him, as I expect it will be done, the Ingrossment of the deed of Gift to Birtley chapel; pursuant to the draught you sent me: tho I doubt whether Sir W[alte]r will have an opportunity of acknowledging it before a mas[te]r extraordinary in chancery within the time you mention; as he is at Wallington, and will go from thence on Tuesday for the north and not return till the end of the month.         

As I suppose Sir Walter will send me an order for the payment of the two sums in a day or two; I have, to save time, inclosed you the form of two receipts I should have for them, & when that order comes and you return these receipts signed I shall pay the money to the Bearer of them or otherwise as you shall direct.

P.S. I received from Mr Stoddart on the 3rd instant the deed of severance of Birtley chapel; which, supposing you would be in Town at the meeting for the sons of the clergy, he desired I would shew you. As you were not, I forwarded his Letter to you about it. Please to let me know what I am to do with it. It is executed by Mr Stoddart & Mr Wastall & acknowledged before a mas[te]r Extraordinary in Chancery. I am etc           HR
