To Mr Darwin Grey’s Inn London                                                      Newca[stle] 31st Octor 1767


If the Deeds relating to Sir Edward Blackett’s purchase of the part of Fenwick Estate are still in your Custody I desire you will send me down a Copy of the Release, that we may be the better ascertained of what he is to enter to. For as Mr Armstrong and Mr Robson are both gone, I have been asked whether Sir Edwd is to have the houses, tho’ I was no way concerned in the transaction; except about the Advertisem[e]nts, by which I see the Messuage was to be sold; and That I suppose means the houses, Garths etc.

I have wrote to Mr Hill for a dozen of hams & a dozen of cheeks for Sir Walter - and if he does not send for the Money hither I should be glad to know whether you will have any means of paying for them, as you have done before. I hope this will find you got well to London after your long vacation a part of which if you could have spent hereabouts it would have been very acceptable to etc    HR
