To Sir Walter Blackett Bt at Wallington                                               Newca[stle] 10th June 1768

Hon[ou]r[e]d Sir

I think there is no necessity for your coming to Town imediately on Account of the intended Exchange between You and Mr Errington as there will be another week before the Award will be executed. I have communicated the Contents of your Letter to Mr Wilson & he is of the same opinion. He says he will make free to enquire of the Arbitrators what grounds they have gone upon – whether they have compared the Lands to be exchanged with other Lands in the Neighbourhood of each & whether they have duly considered the nearness of yours to Hexham & the distance of Mr Erringtons from That or any other Markett. If I hear nothing from you to the Contrary before tomorrow morning at 7 oClock I will then set out with Mr Wilson to Durham & act according to the Tenor of your Letter. I am etc    HR
