To Mr William Robson at Wallington                               Newcas[tle] 20th May 1766

Sir         I have sent you herewith your book of rents, received of the Ord Tenants, and have signed the same; as I found all very right.

You may be sure I am very glad of anything that is for your advantage and therefore congratulate you on the Expectation you have of a joint appointment with Mr Brown for the receipt of the Duke of Portlands rents; but as that must of course be connected with the management of other matters for his grace, you will I doubt have too great a hurry of business to be consistent with your health. In every case that I can be of service to you, and my business will allow, you may depend upon me. But as to what Bills I can have ready for you, in case you should receive the Rents that I cannot tell; till you can tell me your sum and your time. P.S. I shall endeavour to see Mr Brown and tell him what you propose about your journey to Berwick.

I am etc                                                       HR
