To Mr Darwin in Greys Inn London                                              Newcas.   10th   March 1771

Sir      I have reced your Letter of the 6th inst. inclosing me William Berneys receipt for £500 for the use of Anthy. Wright for the half year’s Intst. due to Sr Ed. Winnington on the 6th of last Month on the Mortgage of Wallington and have given you Credit for the same in our Account and I hope this receipt will be a sufficient discharge to Sir Walter .

    As to the £400 Trust Money, the Title of the proposed Security is still before Council.   Mr Heron of Hexham will probably send you a Case about the Distresses made on Greenwich Hospital Tenants for not appearing to do Suit at Hexham Court.  They have got wrong twice and now Mr Fawcett advises taking the Direction of the leading Council if it should come to a Tryal.  I suppose Mr Wallace would be so as only he Mr Wedderburn & Mr Eden Mr Fawcett and Mr Wilson have General Retainers.  You know Mr <B…t? was of Opinion that these Tenants owed Suit to the Court Baron but Mr Fawcett and Mr Wilson think only to the Court Leet & they are for proceeding accordingly if Sir Walter thinks necessary to go on.  But if Mr Heron sends you the Case he will as I desired him write you particularly about it.    You will please to pay Mr Wallace his general Retainer for this year.  All before being paid up to him by me at our last Assizes.                    I am etc    HR
