To Mr Darwin Grays Inn London Newca[stle] 20th March 1768 Sir Sir Walter Blackett has desired Mr Benjn Blaydes of Hull to pay Six Guineas to a poor Woman of that place towards cloathing herself and three Children and also to pay her Thirteen pounds a Year in quarterly paym[en]ts commencing on the 25th instant; & he has desired Mr Blaydes reimburse himself from time to time by drawing upon you; as we have no direct intercourse between this place and Hull: Sir Walter desires you will pay such Bills as he may draw upon you, not exceeding the above Sums, and place them to his Acco[un]t. Our Election comes on to morrow, & I hope, as I wrote you before, that Sir Wr & Mr Ridley will be returned Members for this Town before to morrow night. The Morpeth people are to have a little Sportt; Mr Ayres and Mr Beckford were by Composition to have been chosen to morrow; but I find Mr Dixon of Belford & Sir Matt Ridley have been invited thither & are now actually in Contest with the Compounders. I am etc HR P.S. I wrote Mr Hill in Octo: last for a Doz Hams & a Dozn Cheeks; w[hi]ch I don’t find are yet come. I hope Mr Hill is well; because I am directed to write to him again upon the same Subject.
