Sir Walter Blackett Bt  Half moon Street                                          Newcas  17th Novr 1775

               Piccadilly   London

Honed Sir

	Mr Ra Forster will be discharged as soon as Mr Gibson comes home, which I am waiting for; but to do That, till the Execution can be put in force, is only giving him notice to remove his Effects.  No thing can be worse than Forsters Conduct!  you are right in making him a public Example; only I am affraid you will lose more by this Step than by a Composition.  but if Mr Gibson & Mr Fawcett whom he will consult can tell how to proceed with Effect the Execution will be immediately proceeded with; at least he will be discharged: & Ladler will have charge of every thing at Wallington but the Gardens; till you order otherwise.  Six o’Clock.  Mr Gibson has been with me, & will levy upon Forsters goods to morrow, if the Bailif is in Town: but if not, on Monday at furthest.  by the Bailif I shall send my Letters discharging Forster which Mr Gibson says must not be delivered before the Execution is levied

P.S.  Ladler will attend the Seizure of Forster’s Effects.                   I am etc    HR
