Attorney at Law in Durham

Sir           Your favour of the 6th inst[an]t I communicated to Sir Walter Blackett and he bid me mention to you that Sir John Eden proposed being at His Seat near Durham in 3 or 4 Days. So that lest there should be any Time lost he thinks the safe way will be to acquaint Mr Hamond Hubbock that you have the Letter of Attorney ready and desire him to let you know as soon as Sir John comes.

And at the same time you will please to acquaint me of its being sent; and I shall immediately write to Dr Sharp, that he may go and be admitted. I am etc                                                           H R
