To Mr William Robson at                               Newcas[tle] 11th Febr[uar]y 1765


Sir            I have sent by William Forster the £17.14s.2d for the garden bill.

Your Letter is not full enough to answer Sir Walter’s purpose as you will see by mine to you dated last Tuesday, containing nearly his own words, which I shall repeat lest you should have mislaid that Letter “I desire you will acquaint Mr Robson that there must be another farm or part of a farm that is most conveniently parted with along with Slater’s to make up the sum of about £5400. And let him draw out such particularz of the number of acres, Rent, and outgoings for Tithes etc as the case may be, proper to be shewn to a purchaser.

And at the same time in another paper I would have him put down his opinion of the real value & improvements which he thinks may be reasonably made of the present Rents; (that I may be the purchasor if others do not bid up to near the value”). I desire you will send an answer to this part of Sir Walter’s Letter as soon as you can, either to himself or to etc.   Hen   Richmond
