Your Letter inclosing a receipt whereof the above is a Copy is received but its being given on Acco[un]t of Sr Wr Blackett instead of the Newcastle Bank puts him to some difficulty in settling the Matter between them & Glyn & Hallifax. If your answer to my Letter of the 30th Octor had come sooner or if the Method of drawing a bill for the Money on the bank as therein mentioned had been pursued it would have been easier to have negociated this Matter. however we hope that this Nights post will bring a Letter from Glyn & Co proposing some method of adjusting the Affair and I believe the Bank will pay Sr Wr Blackett the Seven Thousand pounds, which he will then give you the Acknowledgement for that you desire, as on Acco[un]t of your purchase of the Equity of redemption of his Estate at East Kenton. this days post is not yet arrived, tho’ it is now late and I am afraid of losing an opportunity of advising you of the above by waiting longer for it. I am etc    HR
