To Mr Darwin Gray’s Inn                                        Newcas[tle] 18th Jan[ua]ry 1765


Sir      Sir Walter sate out yesterday morning for London and I have sent by him the assignments relating to the £5000. vizt the original assignment and counter part, and Mrs Esther Allgoods assignment of the Trusts devolved upon her relating to that money.

I spoke to Sir Walter about the particulars of Woodcroft and Slater’s farm and he said when he came to London he would look for them & if he had them not he would write.

I have wrote to Mr Johnson about the Copyholds at Woodcroft and as soon as I hear from him I will acquaint you. I am etc     Hen Richmond.
