Sir      In a Letter from Sir Wr. Blackett last Night he says Mr Poughfer has been with him about Cambo and that there’s an End of that Matter with him - he gives up any further thought about it.  So Sir Walter has sent back the Article signed by Lowry, which is here inclosed and which he would not have remain in force in respect to Lowry so will finish that Matter with him directly.  Sir Walter says it is equal to him who has the house etc if its but let to a proper sufficient person - & that he had rather put an End to a public house at Cambo or let it lye on hand than let it to a poor or a disorderly person.                   I am etc    HR
