Mr John Bell  Hexham                                                                       Newcas 6th Decr 1778


	I received yours of the 4th and observe that you have received about Six hundred Pounds and can be here with it any day after Thursday next.  I shall be at Home on Friday & Saturday next so you may come which ever day is convenient to you.  I fear Sir Thos Blackett will be greatly disappointed at not receiving a larger Sum.  I have already remitted him a £1000 & he writes me that I must bring him at least £1300 more.

	The Tenants at Wallington paid up very well which I apprehend has not been the Case with Sir Thomas’ Tenants .

	I would recommend it to you that Application be made to the Tenants that are backward with their Rents for Sir Thomas does insist on their paying up & unless they do I shall be under a Necessity of taking up the Money at the Bank.            I am etc     JEB
