To Sir Walter Blackett Baro[ne]t                                                     Newcas[tle] 2nd Aug[u]st 1764

at Newhouse in Weardale

Hon[ou]rd Sir     Inclosed is a List of what is sent by the Weardale Carriers. Mr Blakes Boa is come by the Fly and will be sent to Wallington on Saturday.

The Vicar of Warden has not any right to the Tithe of Sir Ralph Milbanks Allotment of Hexham Common. The case was laid before Mr Wilson and Mr Fawcett in Octo[be]r last and they were both of that opinion of which I have acquainted Mr Bell.

The Bishop of Chester still draws his bills for the Tithe ore upon Mr Joseph Richmond; tho[ugh] I wrote his Lordship of the alteration. He will perhaps mind better if you think proper to mention to him that they should be drawn upon. Etc                                   H R


Seal of Cuth[bert] Bainbridge

6 Loaves of Bread

7 pineapples

7 bunches of grapes

3 melons

A bag of shott

6 potts for moor grouse
