To Sir walter Blackett Bart. M.P. at the Cocoa Tree in Pall Mall London 

                                                                                                            Newcastle 17th March 1762

Hon[ou]rd Sir       

This morning I waited upon chief Baron Ord at Fenham with the Deeds wch were in your Secretere, relating to Ord Estate and his Lor[d]s[hi]ps Opinion upon the 2nd observation mentioned in Mr Darwins Letter (wch is herewith inclosed) is that, as Circumstances now stand, Mr. Darwin is in the right in proposing to have the deeds of 1716 & the Fine & recovery then suffered, appear in the abstract. But the manner <page torn> appear therein cannot be settled till the deeds of 1716 wch < page torn >  Darwin has, are seen, & the Effects thereof considered. His Lordship says he will be in London in ten Days & will give any assistance in his power. As Mr Darwin mentions in his Lre that he has a copy of the deeds of 1733 I imagine it will not be necessary to send the deeds themselves to London. If it shou[l]d I shall send them by the first Carrier on Mr Darwin’s writing for them.

I hope you are well after your journey, I am etc.    H.R.
