To Sir Walter Blackett Baro[ne]t at Wallington                                    Newca[stle] 28th July 1767

Hon[ou]r[e]d Sir

I wrote to Mr Wilson last post and desired an imediate Answer, but did not fix a day. If I do not hear from him by Frydays post, at farthest, I shall write again and fix a short day for a definitive Answer. Mr Turner’s taking a List of the plate at Wallington & writing me at the foot of it that he has received such plate from Mr Liddell will enable me to settle the rest when he comes to Newcastle; & to give him up his Schedule which was signed by him when he entered.

I shall take care to furnish Mr Bell with the Money & papers necessary for his Journey to Berwick.   I am etc    HR
