To Mr William Alvey Darwin                                                           Newcastle 14th January 1764

     In Grays Inn London

Sir          I received your Lre of the inst inclosing me a London Bank bill for fifteen pounds ; wch I have placed to your credit in the accts. between us I have therein made you d[eb]tor for the fourteen pounds fourteen shillings & four pence w[hi]ch I this day paid to Isable Richardson for the Balance of the Acct of her sons wages on Board the Arrogant Man of War to the time of his death according to the acct you sent me Which you here receive back again signed by her & she is very thankful for the good you have done her in getting her this money.

I thank you for the acct you sent me abt Mr. Lothians balance bill; & hope to give you no further trouble about this affair than what my last Lre would occasion you.

I really think that the scarcity of money wch appears at present in the kingdom makes this an unfavourable time for selling Estates.

I have shown my Bro[ther] the part of your Lre about Hexham Tolls & the Millars & he says he wrote you about these last post’

I am he                                                                                                                                        H R
