	By a Letter from Mr Adams and another from Mr Wilson I am desired to acquaint you who are the legal Representatives of the late Sr. Wm. Blackett’s Sisters - but I do not know them - I waited on Mr Fawcett and Mr Jac Lambert but they have not yet got a full Accot. of them from Mr Darwin but expect in a post or two to hear from him again.  When anything certain is obtained Mr Lambert or I will let you know.  I am sorry you are so much straitened for time with respect to the Blanchland Bill and am afraid you will scarce have enough to get a Description of these parties - I leave it to your Consideration whether when you have staid for it as long as possible you had not better come hither to see whether Mr Fawcett can from Mr Darwin’s Letters help you fill up the Blanks in the petition - this may be saving a day or two that you might lose in waiting for Letters by your post.                      I am etc                          HR
