The Revd Dr Rastall in Newark Newca[stle] the 6th April 1768 Sir Pursuant to Sir Walter Blackett’s Letter to you, of the 8th of Febry last, I shall send by the Fly Coach to morrow a Box directed to you, containing three parts of the Lease of the piece of ground in Sidgate, left by Sir Wiliam Blackett to St And[re]ws Church. One of the parts is intended for the Vestry, one for the Lessee, & the other for Sir Walter to keep with the Deeds of the family. The uppermost Seal of the three, in each part, is for you, the next for Mrs Rastall, & the Lowermost for Mr Wilson the Lessee. The reason that these deeds were not sent you sooner is that Mr Ellison, the Minister, was gone to Oxford and only returned last Week. & it was thought proper he should execute before they were sent to you. After you and Mrs Rastal have executed, before two witnesses, you will please to return the Deeds to etc HR P.S. I find the Coach does not go out till Friday.
