Mr Darwin       No 4 Hatton Street                                                     Newcas 13th Febry 1773



	Understanding from Mr Jac Lambert that the Exemplification of the late Sir Wm Blacketts Will must be produced before the house of Lords in Case you proceed with the Bill for the division of Winlaton, & as I know of no way of Conveying it to you so safe as by the Waggon which is always a fortnight in going to London I have therefore sent the said Exempln by Frans Ridley the London Carrier who set out this Morning and hope you will Receive it safe and desire you will write me so when you get it.  I have paid the Carriage of it and shall be glad to have it back again when the Business is over.

	After all the Applications we have made to Mr Chs Johnson about the postea on the Indictment of the Road from Edmondbeirs to Blaydon and his declaration that it was lost I expect you will receive it from Mr Jac Lambert by the same post you receive this as he shewd it me this Morning & said he would transmit it to you to Night.  As I wrote in my last Letter the Winlaton business is stop’d till Mr Lambert sees a probability that Sir Thos Wentworth will sign the petition, which Lawyer Wilson who saw him lately at Pontefract says he will not do till Mr Phipps writes him he may safely do it - so I hope as you have a Copy of the petition & the Wills etc you will prevail on him to write That Sir Thos may without Scruple sign the petition - Mr Fawcett tells me the Bill is nearly ready and that he hopes & would write you so, that little proof will be wanted in the shape he has formed it, with a saving Clause to all parties but those who sign it                                                                              I am etc                HR
