To Sir Wr Blackett Baro[ne]t MP in Half Moon Street

Piccadilly London                                                                                Newca[stle] 25 March 1769

Hon[ou]r[e]d Sir

Mr Bell will not want this Money till the latter End of May or the beginning of June; so Mrs Browell’s £1500 will suit very well. My Brother has not yet heard of any more, but Mr Bell of Hexham writes me that Mrs Loraine of that Town has £1500, which she is willing to lend on your bond at 4 p[er]Cent[u]m; & as the Money is ready it may be best to secure it, as she takes the 4 p[er]Cent[u]m with Reluctance: therefore if you please Mr Darwin may fill up a Bond from you to Mary Loraine of Hexham in the County of Northumberland Widow.

As you will be down soon the Method of selling Woodcroft may then be considered of.

The Cloths are making for Edwd Evans according to your order. I am etc    HR
