To Mr Denton							Newcastle 19 Febry 1733

Dr Sr 

I acquainted you by last Post that Capt Midford was under Confinem[en]t here for about £40 since w[hi]ch sum other <entries> have been taken out against him, & Mr Blackett out of compassion to him has discharged them all, & sett him at Liberty with mony in his Pocket, w[hi]ch I believe is the last time he will ever Interfere in his affairs. He declares upon his honour his Annuity is engaged no longer than next Candlemass, & has given Mr Blackett an assignm[en]t thereof for £130 5s 6d w[hi]ch he has advanced him, pray therefore give notice that he may not Engage his annuity afresh till that Sum is answered. It is the opinion of Counsell here, that Mr Blackett may Deduct this mony out of the last half years annuity notwithstand[ing] his Engagem[en]t to the London Insurance office, the same being made without his privity. I saw Mr Greive yesterday I told him as you advised that Mr Blackett will expect the whole money, & Costs of Mr Manners who may take what security he pleases of Mr Cook. Pray send down a particular of the Whole Am[oun]t to Mr Blackett pr first opportunity Mr Greive tells me there is a mistake in your proceedings with regard to Mrs Middletons mony & he gave me a state of the Case w[hi]ch I gave Mr Steel & he promises me to send it you with his Sentiment thereon by this Post. I am		Sr Yours etc  J R
