Hon[ou]rd Sir   Inclosed is a Letter I received last post from Dr Sharp and also a deed of Gift, engrossed according to his instructions, for augmenting Birtley Chapel; which, after it is executed, is to be acknowledged by you before a mas[te]r extraordinary in chancery and then sent to London according to the directions in his Letter.

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
