To Mr Darwin at Elston near Newark                                                      Newca[stle] 5 Septr 1768


Mr Wilson has sent me the dra[ugh]t of Conveyance of East Kenton agreeable to your Copy only he has inserted the Name of Freeman Sambroke which I think is wrong & that it sho[ul]d be Sambroke Freeman. He says there is no occasion to except the Out rent and the Fee farm rent which were payments before the Blackett’s family came to the Estate; for since restrained Covenants have come in fashion the general Ones, Contra omnes, have with propriety been left out. He says if Sr Wr Blackett has a Mind to have a Counterpart he will execute one at any time but expects it shall be at Sr Wrs expence as to the Engrossm[en]t.

He says further, As the Mortgagees will probably require the possession of the intended Conveyance he will trouble Sir Walter to execute a Bargain and Sale which may be inrolled – pray is there any Objection to this and is a Thing of Common form? But however it is I wish Mr Banks and you would settle the draught of it and I have wrote Mr Wilson so. He asks me whether there are any and what Judgements affecting this Estate of East Kenton with others and adds if there be any they sho[ul]d be assigned and Satisfaction Entred: but I have wrote him what you said on this head & that he must apply to you about them. I am etc    HR
