To Sir Wr Blackett Bt at Wallington                                                  Newca[stle] 21st Octor 1768

Hon[ou]r[e]d Sir

According to the Notice given to Mrs Idles Representatives your bond to her for £1700 is to be paid off the beginning of next month – You will please to sign the inclosed order for me to send the Money to Mr Darwin.

The Boundary of the Corporation was ridden yesterday with the usual wrangling at Fenham Gate and two or three other places, but upon the whole with as little Irregularity and misbehaviour as I believe it ever was. Mr Ridley left them at Fenham Gate before Matters were settled there.

I postponed sending your Bond to Mr Laidman’s children; thinking you would be here on Wednesday and give directions, which I forgot to ask for, whether I was to send it him.

Mr H. Wilkinson says Lord Darlington dined with the Bishop the day he mentioned Langtihead boundary so it was talked over, & Lord Darlington, when he meets you, will propose an amicable conclusion of the matter and the Bishop will concur in it. I am etc    HR
