To Mr Lancelot Allgood at Bath		Newcastle 27th Octob 1730


      I have received yours of the 17th & 19th inst but not having yet any answer from Mr Cook (nor from Mr Clark to whom I wrote to know if he had any money of him) can’t yet tell how his balance stands. You have on the other side his Accot to this day if Mr Clark has not call’d upon him.

      I have been wth Mr Howard since my last, who now says that being disappointed by Geo <Alder> of some money he expected to receive can’t pay me any more money till about the middle of next month, I gave him a Receipt for the £100, as so much recd for your <ase>, without any further <express> expecting, according to his promise the Immediate paymt of the remainder of the £30 & notes wth interest therefore please to let me know whether I shall deliver up the Notes & endorse the Best upon that Bond, or that it may remain as it is, for since he has so often trifled wth me, I begin to doubt whether I shall get any more, You have on the other side copy of his account brought down to this time & I have by this Post sent Mr Denton an exact Copy of Sr Wm’s Bond.

      Mr Blackett is still at Wallington to whom I sent your Lre yesterday and I expect him here this Day to Mr Aldermn Coulson’s funeral, who dy’d on Sunday morning greatly lamented.

      You would recd this ill news last post in two words wrote within a Lre from Mr <Vaisey> whose servant whas then here & told me all is well at Rideing. Mr Howards note dated the 28 Mar 1727 is only for £25 but is put in the acct drawn out by Mr Hunter £27. My last brought you a bill for £100 I expect to hear from Mr Cook this post, if I do, <will> immediately send you bills on  him, as you direct at 20 days, whether I hear from your Brothre or not wch I have not yet done. Mr Mowbray charges £40 for a London journey wch he says Sr Wm allow’d, please to let me know if you are privy to such allowance,	I am & C JR
