To Richard Wilson Esqr Leeds Yorkshire                                            Newca[stle] 25th May 1768


I apprehend by your Agreement for the purchase of East Kenton that you are to pay all intrest, on the two mortgages that shall become due after the 18th Novemr last; and if so your share of the £280 for the ½ year’s int[e]r[es]t due the 27th March last is £200 and Sir Wr Blacketts £80 & as to the rents of this Estate that were due the 12th instant, I should suppose in case the Agreement is carried into Execution, that they will be due to you; therefore you will please, if you find me right, to send me a Bill on London payable to me or order for this £200; because it may be 4 or 5 months before your Tenants will enable me to reimburse Sir Walter. I do not know what day Mr Freeman expects his money, but I wrote to Mr Darwin the day I rec[eiv]ed your Letter to inform either you or me of it and have been waiting for his answer before I wrote you; but as two or three posts are past since I ought to have heard from him & as a Bill for £200 would be very acceptable just now, I thought it best not to postpone writing to you any longer. I don’t know any thing of Mr Price, further than that Mr Darwin says he is Mr Freeman’s Solicitor & that he had wrote you that Mr Freeman wants his Money.

Besides the Abstract of Kenton Title deeds you have another that is chiefly of Deeds that relate to Sr Wrs other Estates & which will be wanted soon: you will please to return it me as soon as you have done with it & if at the same time you send a plan of West Kenton it will be of use. I am etc    HR
