To  Mr Duffield at Wallington                                                     Newcas.   9th  August 1770

Sir      By a Letter this post from Sir Walter Blackett, which brought the inclosed for you, he directs Fruit to be disposed of in the Assize Week; particularly Pine Apples Grapes & Nectarines; which by your Letter to Mr <Farmer> he <send> may be ready against that time.  Mr Forster would tell you last Week, that I desired you would reserve what fruit you could against the Assizes, & bring or send it in on the Monday - which I beg you will observe; for I shall have a great demand & some difficulty to accommodate every friend of Sir Walters that may want & perhaps expect help from his Gardens, as those here will not furnish above a Melon or two,  Sir Walter mentions a quantity of Nectarines from under the Frames; so you will reserve them particularly, for that Week - & if you have any Melons let them come as well as other Sorts of Fruit.                  I am etc    HR
