To Mr Willm Hutchinson Attorney               Newcastle 6th Febry 1764        

at Law at Mr Joseph Hayes’s in

the Bailey Durham

Sir     I recd your lre requiring my attending the Com[mission]n at Durham this week in the Cause between Mr Bowes & Mr Loftus & have waited till this morning expecting to hear as you said I would from George Wood about the chaise; but as I did not hear from him I sent this morning after him & find he has failed in his business and is now in privacy at Mrs Chandlers at Gisbrough. I therefore desire to know what you would have me to do, that is, whether I must take a chaise alone.

I am sorry to put Mr Bowes to the expense, but as the weather is so uncertain & I have had a cold upon me for sometime, I hope he will think that Conveyance allowable. If so I desire to have immediate answer & if possible I will be at Mr Hayse’s in Durham on Fryday morning before ten o’clock. I shall expect your answer by Thursday’s post otherwise shall conclude you do not need my Attendance.

I am he                                                                              H R
