To Sir W[alte]r Blackett B[arone]t MP in                               Newcas[tle] 20th April 1765

Half  moon street Piccadilly London

Hon[ou]rd Sir                     Inclosed is a List of the Sherif peers, in their order.

The inclosed Advertisement was inserted in our papers today about the stallions; which made it unnecessary for me to say any thing to the serjeants.

Mr Peareth has advised me to give Henry Forster only a Guinea; and that it will be better to let his wife have the rest, when he is gone.

I shall tell Mr Newton to apply to the Aldermen; if he wants to win the stones for the chapel in any of the  Town’s Quarries. I hope you are well after your journey & am etc.

Hen Richmond.
