	I received your letter inclosing Mr Hewitson’s Tickett, also yours last night with the Key of the Bookcase, have examined the Bookcase but cannot find the Plans wanted.  I called upon Mr Bell, who says it is not very much matter as he is going, by Mr Heron’s order, to Wolsingham on Sunday to take a fresh survey &c. shall acquaint Mr Mulcaster of the Sale of Lead to Mr Hewitson.  I called at Mr C. Blackett’s this morning.  Mr Blackett was not in Town, but G. Burnet would let him know to send you the Bills to Morpeth, he said he could not tell what quantity of Lead they would take as they had not yet received an answer from their friends in London. – Your hay is stacking this day, it would have been stack’d yesterday but John had not any Straw – as soon as the Providence Capt. Bailes arrives the goods will be immediately sent up to your house & unpack’d &c. as you desire. – I had a Lre. this morng. from Mr Straker, in which he says “I have been very poorly for 3 or 4 days of a Complaint in my Bowels which has thrown me much back, as I was getting strength very well before”.

	I am Sir Your very Hble Servt.

		Thos. Crawhall

[addressed to:] J E Blackett, Old Gate, Morpeth
