To Mr Darwin - Greys Inn London                                               Newcas 29th Febry 1772


	The box you mention, containing one part of Sr. Wr. Blacketts Will, was brought hither this Morning; & I have told Sir Wr. of it, who is very well; after coming in 48 hours from London.

	As to the Case with Mr. Fawcetts Opinion, about the Corn tithes of Sir Ralph Milbanks Allotment of Hexham Common in right of his Ingrounds at Bullister Bush - You are right in saying that it should have been charged therein expressly that Sir Ralph wants to Cover those Tythes by the Modus or Quit Rent of £13 4d pd for the said Ingrounds.  Against which we say that the Ingrounds are in the parish of Warden & the Allotment in the parish of Hexham & that Sir Wr Blackett is intitled to the Tythes of the parish of Hexham.

	Inclosed is a Copy of the Case and opinion, lest that which you have shod. be any way incorrect. - I am obliged to you for your letter of this Day Senight about My Brother.  I am sorry to find him put to such Shifts as you mention - and doubt he is fallen low both from that & what Sir Walters Servants tell me of John Williams; who was formerly in this family - having met with him often at a Coffee house in St. Giles’s - No reputable part of the Town.

                               I am etc                   HR
