Sir Wr Blackett bids me write you that he expects to be at Hexham in a little time and will then execute the Deeds between Mr Errington & him; but if he should find that he cannot come he will write you where to meet him for that purpose.

As to the place to be set out for the Common Carriers, Sir Wr has no Objections to it; upon the Terms Mr Wilson has proposed – only desires that the present carriers may not gain a property in it, to themselves. In respect of which it may be best to make it a grant during pleasure only; with a small rent, by way of Acknowledgement. I am etc    HR
