To Walter Blackett Esq.			Newcastle 27 Febry. 1730,

Hon. Sir

      Winships Journey to Carlisle has turned to no Accot. for Mrs. Appleby’s Dogs, wch. he went to see, are no ways suitable, being two Inches above the Size of the <Fowlers Peice>, he took <Singwell> & Darling wth. him and was out a days hunting, when about four couple out viewed Darling, but <Singwell> out drove them all he tells me the best are stole, & that there remains twelve Couple, wch. Mrs. Appleby could set no price on, till she hear from her Son who is at Edinburgh, but I think from his Report they are not worth any further Enquiry. 

      Mr. Cuthbt. Fenwick sent me on Wednesday last for three <qu.s> wch. I paid him, I presume agreable to you. I hope the last of Oats is come to hand   Intend to plow out the <Nun> the latter end of the next Month if you were willing to Lease it from Mayday for 7 Years, I beleive abt. <2L> a Year might be got for it but I presume you have no thoughts of letting it.

      I am   JR
