To Mr Xpher Denton Newcastle 7th June 1734 Sir. Inclosed is a State of the Case with the King of Denmark, the amount brought down to 1731, & a Schedule of what papers wee have relating to that affair, by w[hi]ch you will see it has been sollicited in almost every Reign without obtaining any Satisfaction & I therefore doubt wee are likely to receive none now, I hear nothing from Mr Greive, only Mr Steele has received a letter from him desiring the Execution against Cook may be sent him but Mr Blackett will not meddle any further with Cooke, You will see what return is made by the Sheriff & then let me know whats to be done further. I thought an affid[avi]t should have been made of the Refusall to grant a warrant but Mr Steele says its of no Use. You will receive the £200 to pay Mr Groce in a few Posts, & I have two persons ready to swear they received each half a Guinea of Mr Carrs Ag[en]t to give him their Votes w[hi]ch they gave notwithstanding to <Mr A> do you think their Affidavits would be of any Service against Mr Carr in case he should give Mr Blackett any Trouble by a Petition I am etc J.R.
