To Mr Darwin in Grays Inn

London                                                                  Newcas[tle] 4th Decem[be]r 1765

Sir            I have yours of the 30 ult[ last month] inclosing me Mr Savages receipt for four hundred & ninety five pounds for the half years int[e]rest due on his late Brothers mortgage on Wallington the 6th ult [last month] and have given your Acco[un]t credit for the same.

I have sent you by the Fly coach, which sets out for London tomorrow, the deeds of the conveyance of Mollersteads from Sir W[alte]r Blackett to the Governors of Queen Anns bounty, for a perpetual Augmentation of the Curacy of Whitley. And Sir W[alte]r has drawn a *Bill on the Treasurer payable to you the consideration money, which I suppose he will send you as soon as he comes hither from Wallington; and by the same post Letters of Advice will be sent to the Treasurer and to Mr Chester  So that till you receive the bill you need not say anything to Mr Chester about the deeds.

I hope you will find them conformable to the instructions and shall be glad to hear that you receive them safe. I am etc    Hen Richmond

*Note at left hand side- 1oth Dec[embe]r S[i]r W[alte]r sent this bill to Mr Darwin this day.
