To Mr Denton							Newcastle 25th May 1734

Dear Sr

I have yours of the 14th & hope Mr Blackett has given you directions to endeavour to make Mr Groce & the rest that want money of him easie till he can remit it them, for at present I can raise none. About the middle of next Month he proposes I believe to send you at least £500 w[hi]ch I suppose he has told you. I received a letter last week from Mr Joye for the last half years Intrest, w[hi]ch I cant yet get a shilling of. All trading is so very dull, & Money so scarce here. I am glad the Corporation has put in their Answer, & hope the cause will now go forward, Mr Allgoods & my Acco[un]ts to  Xmas 1731 come this day by the carrier in a Box directed for you. You are Witness to Mrs Blackett’s signing my Acco[un]ts but there is no Witness to Mr Blackett, Mr Allgood & Mr Clarks signing them. You know their hands, & believe may remember their assent thereto when you gott Mrs Blackett to sign, w[hi]ch I hope will do before the Ma.r [Mayor?] if not you must put me in the right way, Mr Allgood says your evidence will be sufficient & that if any body should witness to their signing here, they will be obliged to come up to London. I am	Sr yrs etc J R
