To Mr William Robson at Wallington                          Newcas[tle] 16 Febr[uar]y 1766

Sir           I sent you by Thomas Thompson yesterday the amount of the garden bill which I hope you have got safe.

Sir Walter wants a Rental of Ord Estate with the names of the Tenants; but before I can send it him I must desire you will let me know to whom his half of Needle Eye and White Sands fishings are let and for what sum and whether Boreham & Forster still have the Colliery in the Threap Ground for which they paid thirty pounds a year or when they quitted it and also that you will let me have an exact acco[un]t of the Cottages at East Ord, to whom they are let and for what sums annually and pray send me the Christian Name of each Tenant.

I shall be glad to have an answer to all this by Ned on Tuesday & am etc   HR
