To Sir Wr. Blackett Bt.  M.P.  in Half Moon Street             Newcas.  5th Febry  1770

             Piccadilly,   London

Honrd. Sir                     I believe it is settled that Mr Waters & Mr Mosley are to come up directly about the Keelmen’s petition.  I gave the printed copy of it to Mr Blackett & and also the paper about the Sunderland Keelmen which he gave to Mr Peareth as I had a little cold that prevented my going out yesterday but I am better of it today which I mention as I find Mr Blackett took Notice of it in his Letter to you.

    The Woodcroft deeds have been before Mr Fawcett for some time & if he approves of the Title the Conveyance I suppose may soon be finished.  By the Articles the Money is to be paid at Mayday but delays so often happen in Law Matters that there cannot yet be any Certainty that it will be so paid.  The £1200 for the Hexham Ferry will be I hope to come out of that Money for I do not think it possible for me to pay it and provide too for all the demands that will be made this half year.              I am etc              HR
