To Mr Denton							Newcastle 19th April 1734

Dr Sir 	

I have yours of the 13th with Capt Midfords receipt etc & repeat my Request as to Cuth: Ogle with whom I fear Mr Blackett will have some trouble, if he be not a sufferer by him, for he is far behind with his Rent, has neglected most of the conditions of his lease, & I doubt no security was given for their Performance. According to the Acco[un]t you sent me Mr <Manner’s> Debt & Costs amount to £499.12.2 ½ of which £165.17.10 ½ has been paid, if thier is any alteration or addition to be made thereto, pray let me know pr first conveniency that I may be prepared when Mr Greive calls & also let me know what discharge I am to give him on payment of the Remainder of the money etc. Inclosed you receive my bill on Messrs Cook & Abell for £200 out of w[hi]ch I desire you will pay Mr Blacketts ½ years annuity due 1st May next & Mrs Withrington £60 w[hi]ch Sum I have received here of her Steward, taking her receipt for the same to discharge the Receipt I have given for (that) money the remaining £40 please to keep in your hands on my acco[un]t till you hear further from me You may draw more what you please for the £200 you mention, giving me a week’s notice before you draw, if at sight as to the £400 to be paid the 1 May. I know not how it can be done for I cannot raise £500 here towards the last ½year’s Interest w[hi]ch I expect Mr Joye will be in a great hast for: another ½year being almost due. neither do I think it well for me to mention the money to Mr Blackett who has never name it to me I rather wish you would be so good as remind him of it I mean the £400

      I am Sir Yor most humble Servant
