	I have received a Letter from Mr Darwin by which I find you have sent him the Petition and Draft of a Bill for settling Matters between Lord Crewe’s Trustees and Sr Wr Blackett in respect of the disputed Boundary between Blanchland and Hexham

	Sir Walter Blackett has asked me some Questions about this Bill which I could not answer as I have not seen it   I should therefore be obliged to you for a Copy of so much of the Genl Bill as relates to this Boundary

	The first time you come to Town I should be glad to see you about drawing a Lease of a Lead mine between Sir Walter Blackett and Mr Baker but as this Matter does not require haste I do not mean that you should come on purpose about it

	There is certainly is a long Accot between Sir Walter Blackett and you about Subscriptions to Hexham Bridge and Law Business which I could wish to have settled and therefore desire as soon as it is convenient to you that you will make up those Accots.

	I shall be glad to know what has passed at last Sessions relating to the Indictmt of Ridley Township for the Repair of the Lead Way                       I am etc    HR
