To Mr Wm. Robson at Wallington                                     Newcastle 24 Ap[ri]l 1762

Sir / I have sent you £40.15s.10d by Wm Pringle, being the amo[un]t of the Garden bill. I am glad you have so handsomely bid for the wood in Winlaton <Letss> nobody has as yet ask’d us the question ab[ou]t it, & therefore yo[u]r barg[ai]n will stand, & I shall be glad to see you here the Day senight, to reduce it into writing. If Edwd Robson will bring the bond he has found to Wallington on the rent day; I will give him up, or else cancel the release he gave Sr W[alte]r in Lieu of it. I am etc J R

NB. April 24th 1762 the bond was bro[ugh]t to town by his two sons & the release cancelled.
