To      Mr Darwin   Greys Inn                                           Newcas.   18th  June 1771


Sir      Inclosed is Bell Cookson & Cos. Bill on Glyn & Hallifax  for One hundred & fifty seven pounds ten Shillings, payable at 25 days from this day; which for the present you  will place to my Account & advise the receipt of.  This Bill is to enable you to pay Mr Thurlow his ½ Years Composition Rent for Weardale Tithe Ore due 22nd of next Month & when you have paid it you will please to send me the receipt & I will give you Credit for it.  Sir Walter said he had promised Mr Thurlow to pay him this Money in London which is contrary to antient Usage.  I was mistaken and wrote off Book, when I said this Money was due on the 22nd Augst.   We have some Obstructions in our Coal Trade by the pitmen & Keelmen: but the former are gone to work again and the Latter it is hoped will be reconciled to it in a few days.   Sir Walter is at Wallington and a good deal better of the Gout; tho not yet able to walk.

     My Brother has been an Inhabitatant of your Town long, & I am glad to hear he was to set out yesterday for this place.  Pray shall we see you in it this Summer? I assure you the Sight would give pleasure to  etc    HR
