To Sir Walter Blackett B[arone]t at Wallington                  Newcas[tle] 17th May 1766

Hon[ou]rd Sir            Mr Darwin has sent me a copy of the peremptory advertisement for the sale of woodcraft and Fenwick Burnside, on the 19th of next month, to be inserted in the newspapers here; and desires to know if you would have it put into any of the London Evening papers. Mr Mich[ae]l Pearson intends to bid for Fenwick, and has been asking whether all Edward Slater’s farm, or what part of it is to be sold? For which I have refered him to Mr Robson; not having a plan, nor any description of it that is satisfactory to him.

Mr Lambert says Mr Ord of Fenham’s eldest son is the best life he knows of for a Lease; so I shall write to Mr Johnson as soon as I can get the certificates completed. I am etc HR

P.S. I have sent the p[ai]r of spar by the cart.
