To       Mr Darwin  Grays Inn                                          Newcas.   23rd   Febry 1771


Sir      It is likely we shall soon determine on lending the Four Hundred pounds, remitted you in November last, on the Mortgage of an Estate in the County of Durham: as there is now no appearance of the Stocks affording a reasonable Interest for it.  I mention this, that in Case I should draw a Bill on you for that Sum at 20 or 25 days date it may be no inconvenience to you to pay it.

   I have not heard from Sir Walter since he got to Town; but I hope he is well, & that you are so too.                    I am etc    HR
