Sir       My father has rec[iev]ed this day Thirty pounds of Mr. Jno Ord on your acco[un]t. I gave him a Receipt for It, and have placed it to your credit in the acco[un]t between you & my Father. My father thinks the properest direction to Mr. John Beaumont will be to him at West Denton to the care of the postma[ste]r in Newcastle. But desires no more processes may be sent to him to serve on Mr Beaumont. he having already served a notice of motion & two writs of Execution on him.

I shall be glad to receive the copies of the depositions in 1684 as soon as possible & wish you wo[ul]d enquire of your clerk in Court whether any body else has been searching or got copies of these depositions. For as I have heard nothing from Mr Halhead I suppose he must be endeavouring to procure some information about them, as I told him we had not been able to meet with any depositions on behalf of the defendants    I am etc   HR
