To Mr Denton							Newcastle 9th April 1734

Dear Sir

I have before me yours of the 30th ulto. What can I say to Mr Nicholas Widdons its certain the £7 odd has been paid by Sr Wm as appears by a stated Acco[un]t of the £65000 & if the Remainder was not deducted in the Acco[un] of the £12000 mortg[ag]e w[hi]ch Mr <Hathons> Accot gives no light into, the Trustees must give an order for the paym[en]t of it. I will endeavour to get you such an order the first time they meet together, for I cant take upon me to order the paym[en]t of it myself being an Entire strainger to the matter. Pray can you without much difficulty or trouble find what mony Cuthb[er]t Ogle has p[ai]d into the Bank on Acco[un]t of Mrs Blackett’s estate since 29 July 1726 when the <Ma.rs> reported all rent to be paid to the 1st May 1725 Mr Ogle charges the following sums w[hi]ch I want to know if right. Do you know if any body was bound w[i]th Mr Ogle for performance of the Covenants of the Lease, & have you any (less) of the <Ma.rs> report made when Mr Blackett received his Lady’s mony out of the Court of Chancery w[hi]ch Report, I should be glad to see. I am Dr Sr Yrs etc			J R
