My Lord

      I have us’d my best Endeavours to procure your Ldship a bill for the amount of your last years dues, but without Success: here being no trade stirring at present, neither has Mr. Denton, who I intended should have paid you in London any money of Mr Blackett’s at this time in his hands, so must desire your Lordsp will order your Steward at Durham to call upon me for the money, which will be no more than 255l.16s.4d after deduction of the land tax, for Mr Dover is mistaken as to Dodhil grove, as the inclosed paper will show, & as to the Difference at Pikestone it will come into the next years acct to wch. it properly belongs, having been delivered since the 30th June last.   I have re-examined the Acct & think the other Articles are all right cast up, I wish your Ldsp many happy Years &am

      My Lord, Your Lordsps Most obedt hble Servant

      J Richmond

Mr Richmond 13 Jan 1743 

To Show Dodhil Lot was got before 1741 & that only due to me 255:16 4
DCRO D/Bo/F/124. This item is incorrectly entered in the DRO catalogue as being dated 13th January 1714, when in fact it was written on 13th January 1744 in the modern calendar.   The note on the reverse of the letter is probably in Bishop Chandler’s own hand.
