To Mr Darwin  Greys Inn  London                                               Newcas. 9th Decemr. 1771


  Sir Walter desires you will buy for him as soon as you can at any of the stationers where you can meet with it, a Book entitled the History of London Bridge printed about the year 1750 - there are two editions of it in Octavo, but he wants the larger one which is most likely the later publication & he desires you will send it by the Fly Coach directed to him - I believe the Coach sets out from the George & Blue Boar, Holburn, on Mondays Wednesdays & Fridays.

Ps  I suppose you, as Agent to Mr. Gibson would of course have been employed for Mr. <Silvertop> but I hope you will give the preference to the Lords of Winlaton as you cannot be employed for both.

  I hear nothing yet of My bror ! pray do you suppose he is still in London.

I am etc                                                                                                         HR
