To Mr Ralph Heron at Hexham                                                            Newca[stle] 29th Novr 1768


As Mr Errington has desired to have your bill relating to the Exchange of lands at Hallington for Lands at Anick grange I think it would be right, as you propose, to mention to him the Money that Sir Wr Blackett has expended on that Acco[un]t which is as follows vizt to the Com[missione]rs for their fees and expences £59 18s 3d to Mr Wilson for Carriage of the deeds to promfret and back by the Fly, and for a person going over to Sir Thomas Wentworth to get them executed £1 11s 6d and for the first Survey made by Marshall and Langlands £4 9s 0d in all £65 18s 9d besides this there is Mr Wilson’s bill, if he will deliver one; or if not such a sum as may be deemed adequate to the trouble that has been given about this Affair; which Mr Errington and you can judge best of.

As to Mr Errington’s note for the Wood I think you had best send it to me.

I have given the Deeds executed by Mr Errington, and which are to be inrolled, to Mr John Bell; who is gone to the pays, but will be at Hexham with them, I hope, on Friday next. I am etc    HR
