A Monsieur   Monsieur Le Chevalier Blackett                                  Newcas.   9th  Octor 1770

    Seigneur Anglois   Chez Monsr. Louis

       Julien - Rue Simon Le Franc

               A Paris

Honrd. Sir      The Inclosed Letter and one that Mr Blackett said he would write make it unnecessary for me to say what passed yesterday at the Guild - the abuse turned all upon Mr Ridley: but the Recorder interposing with Spirit put an End to it.  Mr Ridley told me yesterday he thought he would not trouble you with a Letter, as he had written since he heard from you.  The Mayor received your Letter as he came from the Guild & communicated it, to the general Satisfaction of your friends.  By the same post I recd your Letter of the 1st instant and shall go to Wallington this week and collect the particulars about the Farms Gardens & other Matters those that you want to have account of.  At present I do not think of any thing to add, but that I am very glad you have received benefit from going abroad & hope it will last you long after your return home, which will be a Satisfaction to many and to etc     HR

PS.  Please to let me know whether, as Mr Peareth and Mr Cookson have had their haunches & Lieut. Scott half a Buck, you wod. have a Doe killed to give them another half - & if so, to whom the rest should be given?
