Sir Walter Blackett Bt half moon Street                                           Newcas  30th Octor 1775

                  Piccadilly   London

Honed Sir

	Mr Duffield has taken Money to pay the Garden Bill and Mr Laidler thinks he can manage all other Receipts & payments till you order otherwise so no more Money will be paid to Mr Forster on any Account & he thereby will be prevented from doing further mischief.  The Rent day will be on Monday the 27th Novemr when all Bills will be settled and it will appear whether he had got any more money of the Tenants than he owned with when you were here; he made no answer to the advice given him to Sell his Estate.  I am told his Estate being only Dean & Chapter’s Lease and no more than a personalty the Way to secure against other Creditors is to take out Execution under the Judgement & lodge it with the Sherif; but Mr Darwin, to whom I suppose Mr Gibson would send the Judgement, can advise about this - the hare you were so good as to send me escaped my mind but you will please now to accept our Thanks for it.                                   I am etc   HR
