As perhaps you have not a mas[te]r at Wallington, I do not know how this deed can be completed in the time The Dr mentions, unless you call at Alnwick in your journey to the north and get it done there. As to the money that he writes for, if it is right, you will please to sign the inclosed order for my paying it. P.S. Mr Lanc[elo]t Stout, one of the Electors, died this morning. I am etc HR PS Mr Robson to his fixing with Mr Brown ab[ou]t the [the Boghill. The cook to come in about his bills.
