To Richard Wilson Esq. in                         Newcas[tle] 17th June 1765


Sir       I acquainted Sir Walter Blackett that you desired he would, at your expence, let his writings be looked into by his own council; to see whether the modus of 13s.4d paid for East Kenton small Tithes will cover West Kenton; He readily agreed to it, and ordered me to write to Mr Darwin of Grays Inn accordingly, (the writings being in London) and on the other side you have a copy of the answer I received from him last post.

Dr. Brown is Vicar both of Newcastle & Gosforth.

P.S. I have no receipts for the small tithe of East Kenton older than 1731. Pray am I to pay Mr D[arwi]n the Guinea wch he charges & place it to y[ou]r acco[un]t? am etc  Hen Richmond
