I send you herewith inclosed two parts of my Acco[un]t of your half year’s rent of W[es]t Kenton due Martin[ma]s last and also Bell Cookson & Cos bill on Glyn & Hallifax for Two hundred & Eighty three pounds nineteen shillings & ten pence half penny for the Balance of it, which Bill you will please to advise me of the receipt of, by return of the post, & return me a part of the Acco[un]t sigend by you mentioning the receipt of Mrs Headlam’s receipt which is also herewith inclosed.

In the first column of the inclosed Newspaper is an Advertisement containing the particulars of Sr Arthr Hazlerigs Estate adjoining Kenton which is to be sold in Chancery in June next & which I take the Liberty of sending you, that if you please you may make an Addition to your Estate in Northumberland. The Lot, number’d 8, containing the Manor of Fawdon which adjoins to East Kenton is very improveable, as I am informed, & worth 30 years purchase at the present rent: only the reservation of the Royalty will be a discouragement to purchasers.

The Roofs of two or three of the farm houses at E[as]t KJenton will want some little reparation this Summer & the Season should not be slipped. Sir Walter Blackett has paid the Mortgagees of E[as]t Kenton their half year’s int[e]r[es]t, to wit £280, & the same is placed to your Account. I am etc    HR
