To Mr Darwin  Greys Inn London                                                             Newcas. 3rd June 1772


	I have enquired after the surrenders & Admittances mentioned in your Letter of the 28th. Ultm. & which you say Mr. Chaster has requested you are wanting to compleat the title of hunterods Estate - & Mr. John Bell tells me that Mr. Isaac Hunter the vendor had no Copies of the Admission of 10 Augst. 1719 of Leonard Shield nor of the Surrender from Leond. Shield & Elizth. his wife to Thos. Shield nor of Thos. Admittance thereupon but that he will see Mr. Hunter & Endeavour to get Copies of them from the Court Rolls in a few posts - This is a Stop to this Transaction that I should have thought a Fifty years possession would have rendered no Way necessary.

	Inclosed I return you the two bills, one for £21. & the other for £19 drawn by my Brother on Mr. James Clarke Merchant in this Town & which you sent me last post - Mr. Clarke says he is much surprised at the drats. & that he will neither accept nor pay them; having no Connection nor Accot. with my Brother - As to the Deficiency of franks which you complain of - I doubt I cannot remedy it by applying to Sir Walter who is still very indifferent - if I can get any, I will send you them - but I should think you might get a few from Sir Ridley &some others of the Members you have had so much intercourse with this Sessions       I am etc    HR
