To Mr Peart							Newcastle 14 Mar: 1733

On Receipt hereof Mr Blackett orders you to go over to Dr Watts at Wolsingham & consult with him, & others of the principall Parishioners about the Grove that Mr Hutchinson is now working near the Boundary of that Parish, w[hi]ch he says is in the Parish of Eggleston, but Dr Watts insists is in the Parish of Woolsingham. He has got 15 or 20 Bings of Oar as I am informed this Day & if he should be allowed to do that in Mr Blacketts Liberty without your taking notice of it, it will certainly be a very great Reflection upon you & all Mr Blacketts managers, therefore <leave> no time in considering this affair, & what steps are to be taken in it. I am   Yrs etc  J.R.
