To Thos. Wentworth Esq., at Godfrey Bosville’s Esq. in Great Russell Street Bloomsbury London Wallington 20 June 1761 Dear Sir The inclosed agreement signed by Mr Ord & my self explains it self so fully that there is not occasion to trouble you with many words upon it. The intention of the commission to examine in chief is to corroborate the claim wch you or whoever of the remainder in S[i]r Wm. Blacketts will may come into possession of hexham may make to about 500 acres of moor ground wch is in dispute betwixt myself as the present possessor of hexham & Mr Ord the present possessor of Whitfield, & I have been principally the occasion of this Com[issio]n in order to leave to my successors the best evidence I can of their claim or right to that parcel of ground so that you may depend upon my word & honour for the propriety of your signing it. And when you have signed it I desire you will inclose it in the cover, as it now is directed to Mr Rastall, for he & his wife are to sign it as Trustees, & send it to the posthouse. I hope this will find you in perfect health being <Dear Sir> Your Obed[ien]t Wr Blackett.
