Mr Thos Wall                                                  Newcastle  Jany  30th 1785

Temple  London

Sir     I have your favour of the 25th ins[tan]t with your receipt for the £200 on account of the Quarterly Payments to 31st  Mar[ch] next.  As you do not think a Stamp necessary I am satisfied. Inclosed I send you a Bill drawn by Bell Carr & Co on Castell & Co dated 29th inst. at a Months date for £625 to pay Sir Edw[ar]d Winnington’s Interest due the 6th Feby. next the receipt of which you will please to acknowledge & send me the Banker’s receipt, as usual, when the Money is Paid.   Inclosed I send you Sir Walter Blount’s Letter & I think he has no cause to complain of this Payment w[hi]ch is about the usual time that it was made in the lifetime of the late Sir Walter Blackett, & I should have made you this remittance by this Post without any Application from Sir Walter Blount, who may depend on having the Interest Paid at the usual times; the former half Yearly Payment had certainly been too long delay’d which shall not be the case for the future.       I am etc  J. E. Blackett
