To Mr Darwin Grays Inn London                                                         Newca[stle] 4th Augst 1767


I believe I have received two or three Letters from You since I wrote last, but having nothing Material to say deferred writing till now. Sometime ago I paid Mr Richard Brown Ex[ecu]tor of Mr Robson the sum of Six pounds being the Balance of the Acco[un]t between him and you & inclosed is the said Acco[un]t settled & signed by him as you desired. As this was done before I received your last Letter I think it best to return you your Letter to Mr Brown which came inclosed in it as you therein mention the said £6 as not yet paid him. The Direction to him is at Kirkharle near Newcastle. I have been expecting from time to time and Answer from Mr Brown about Archers Bond which at last he told me he had found & would send me soon; but it is not yet come.

I have received back from you Mr Johnsons receipt for Sir Wrs Costs about Woodcroft, and also a receipt for Crosby’s Acc[oun]t sent & shall speak to Mr Greenwell the first time I meet with him.

I have been laid off writing for some Days by the rheumatism in my right hand and if I can set my Name to this Letter it will be as much as I’m able to do, tho’ I am now a good Deal better of It.

I am etc       HR
