To Mr Darwin  Greys Inn                                                   Newcas.  15th Janry 1770


Sir    I have your letter of the 11 instant inclosing me Mrs. Sorsbie’s receipt for £21 for a yrs. Allowance due to her from Sir Wr. Blackett at Chsmas last and have given you Credit  for it.     I wish we had the SoW Generals opinion about Wallington’s Timber for then Sir Walter would determine what answer to give the hospital.

   Sir Walter says I may, for his occassions here, draw on you for £1200 of the money he is to have on Wallington on the 6th of next month.  So when you have got it, you will please to let me know.  I think it will save trouble if you keep £200 of that money on Accot. of the quarterly payments and send me the usual receipt for it, and allow me to draw on you for the remaining £1000, at 15 days date,

  I wish you many happy years & am etc     HB
