To Mr Darwin - Greys Inn London Newcas. 13th April 1772 Sir Inclosed is Bell and C.os bill on Glyn & Co for Two hundred & ninety pounds on Account of the quarterly payments you are to make in London for Sir Walter Blackett between the 31st Ultm & 30th June rent which you will please to place to his Account accordingly and send me the usual receipt for it. Sir Walter does not contradict the direction about writing to the Rev.n Mr. Hudson. He continues still much out of order and gets no sleep. Dr. Askew is now employed for him and I hope will do him service. Sir John & Mr. Trevelyan are not come at this time I am writing this but will probably be here this Evening & contribute I hope to divert Sir Walter from that Anxiety about the Bridge & other public Business that distresses him so much & they will prevail upon him I hope to go to Wallington or else where to be out of the way of all Conversation about it. That Letter which I inclosed you to Sir John may be returned me if he was set out before you got it. Genl. Mackay has a pipe of Madeira coming for Sir Wm. with some of his own to London but Sir Walters is to be sent down hither. he does not mention the Ship, so the meaning of my naming this to you is only in Case he should when it comes desire your Assistance or even payment both of Duty and Wine etc Charges you may do it - tho it is proposed to him by this post to let his Agent or Broker manage and pay all for Sir Walters wine & that the money will be repaid the General here by me Care must be taken that a proper Dispatch or permit is sent with the Wine if you are applied to. My Brothers Conduct is very bad indeed particularly in the instance you mention. he has wrote to no body here that I can hear of; which perplexes My Sister a good deal as she must move to Hexham in a little time. Something will be done to morrow about the writings that are in his Office & Closet by Lawyers Clennell and Wilson & Mr Widdrington I intend to have no Concern with them having no time at present to engage in such a Business I dare say you will believe. I am etc HR £290 Newcastle Bank 11th April 1772 Thirty days after date pay to the Order of Mr. Hen.y Richmond Two hundred & ninty pounds _ value received For Bell Cookson Carr Self & Saint Jm.o Widdrington pay the Contents to Mr. Will.m Alvey Darwin or Order value in Acco.t Hen Richmond To Mess.rs Glyn & Hallifax London No. 36986.
