To Mr Darwin Grey’s Inn

London                                                                        Newcastle 13th November 1765

Sir      I am favoured with your’s of the 9th instant [this month] inclosing me Mr Lambrooke Freemans receipt for one hundred and forty pounds for the half year’s int[e]r[es]t on Sir W[alte]rs mortgage due to the late Mrs Lambrooke the 27th Sept[embe]r last and have placed the same to your account.

I shall be glad to know what Deeds you sent Mr Chris[tophe]r Johnson and then I shall endeavour to get them from him. He is not so regular & expeditious in business as I could wish and I doubt he has not done much towards rectifying the title of the copyhold part of Woodcroft Estate. Iam etc     HR
