Agreable to yours of the 7th I send you inclosed Mr. Howards Bond to Mr. Blackett for £265.0.00 for wch. no intrest has been paid, I presume you have no occasion for the <warrant> of Attorney, wch. as you do not write for, I have not sent I shall be glad to hear the Results of the Conference held at Mr. Bowes.s on Friday last, & tho Mr. Blacketts part of Kenton is so pretty an Estate that tis a pity to part with it yet can’t avoid thinking tht. If they’ll give a good price for it, viz £22,000 or £23,000 it would be more eligible to sell, than to buy. I desire you’l present my humble Servi. To Mr. Clark, also to Mr. Macmorran wth. my wishes on the present occasion, & that you’l please to own the Receipt of the Inclos’d. You have my thanks for the glasses, when they come to hand they shall first be imploy’d with my drinking to your Health, & a Succession of many happy new Years.

I am
