To Mr Darwin Greys Inn London                                                             Newca[stle] 4 June 1768


I have received your Letter of the 31st Ult[im]o inclosing me Mr Savage’s receipt for four hundred & ninety five pounds for half a Year’s int[e]r[es]t of £22000 due from Sir Walter Blackett the 6th of last month & have given your Acco[un[]t Credit for the same.

Inclosed in the same Letter I rec[eiv]ed Roger Crosbys receipt for three pounds twelve shillings which I shall call upon Mr Greenwell for; and advise you on my receiving the money.

I see that in my Letter of the 14th Ult[im]o wherein I mentioned the Ten Shillings paid for a Modus for the Corn Tithe of part of Fenwick that I said it was for the Corn Tithe of Edwd Slater’s farm; but I must beg leave to make an Amendment to that Expression, for That modus covers the Corn tithe of two farms in Fenwick township, one called Burnside let to Edward Slater for £120 a year & the other called Fenwick Shield let to Thos Mason for £100 a year. this I thought should be set right lest any intention should hereafter arise of making any Deed in respect of this Modus, as in a former Letter you thought would be necessary. I am etc    HR
