To Sir Wr. Blackett  Bt.  M.P.  in Half Moon Street                             Newcas.  16 April 1770

                           Piccadilly  London

Honrd Sir         I cannot think of anything material to write about at present; having in my two last letters mentioned all that has occurred.  only lest any delay should happen in the payment of Mr Errington’s Money for want of a discharge from yourself, it may be right, as the Note is not endorsed, to sign the inclosed Authority to give him a receipt, if required which I think is better than venturing the Note by the post.  Mr John Bell is removed hither from Hexham.

   I wish you a good journey and beg leave to say it will be a great Satisfaction to me to receive, as often as Convenient, an Account of your Health.        I am etc    HR
