Sir Walter Blackett   Barot   MP                                                    Newcas  27th Novr 1775

    Half moon Street  Piccadilly   London

Honed Sir

	The Tenants will be told to day by Mr Blackett who is at Wallington that they are not to pay any Rent but on the Rent days there, or into the Office here: and money will be sent from time to time from hence to pay all Bills for Workmen & others at Wallington & Enquiry will be made of Hepple & Potts about the £190.  Forster and his Wife are not to be seen at present, but when the Sale is over it will be known what they intend about removing from Cambo; and whether the offer of the Years Rent will be effectual - Mr Bell sometime ago allowed Mr Forster to receive the Rent for Hallington Main Corn Tithe so I am afraid the loss of the £18. 10s. 0d will fall upon you.

	Your goodness in thinking about my Writing I am very sensible of & thank you for and also for your licence for the Spa Water - The Reestablishment of your own Health is my earnest Wish.

P.S.    I have received your Letter of Friday & rejoice that you are better - I shall order the Horses etc from Wallington and provision against your Arrival & wish you a good Journey 

                                                                                      I am etc    HR
