To Sir Wr Blackett Bt MP						Newca[stle] 14 Feb[rua]ry 1767

In Half Moon Street Piccadilly London

Hon[ou]r[e]d Sir

I hope you are well after your Journey. As Mr Bell has given Notice to quit your ¼ of Winlaton Coll[ie]ry at Xmas next it wo[ul]d be right to have Mr Ridleys claim to the Coal in Thorneley settled if possible before that time for the new winning cannot be effected without carrying up a Level or drift thro’ that part of Winlaton Lordship. Mr Darwin has a State of the case & also the title deeds of Winlaton & I hope will be able to satisfy Mr Ridley that the person his Father bought of had no right. Nothing has been done here in the Hexham bridge subscription since you left Newcastle. Young Robson, that was to have gone to Virginia in Capt[ai]n Blaigdon’s ship has by loitering here let it sail without him tho he had sufficient notice it was ready. I have not yet paid the Capt[ai]n so shall try whether less than the Contract will satisfy him       HR
