Sir    I received the favour of your two Letters and have got the Lease of Allandale Lead mill and of the coach house in Hexham both executed by Sir W[alte]r Blackett and shall send them to Mr Bell on Saturday next, ( when Sir Walter goes to Hexham) to be executed by you, and to deliver you a part of each of them.

I have not sent them by the Bearer because Sir Walter tells me he will not go to Hexham from Chollerford but to Wallington and so hither again on Fryday and then to Hexham on Saturday; when you may depend upon having them sent. I am etc   HR
