To Mr Denton                                     Newcastle 10 July 1733


I herewith return you your writings executed by Mr Wilkinson, but as to the conveyance <from> Mr Collingwood of the 8 & 9 Mar 1716 I can get no acco[un]t, As I wrote you in my Lre of the 19 ultimo, <I> examined Mr Blacketts Scutore [escritoire; writing desk] & every where else before, & have done the same now a second time to no purpose, for I am certain those deeds are not about this House. Thos. Collingwood is dead, & his Son Alex[ande]r Collingwood of Little Ryall assures me he has no such writings, for at a Comission held by Mr Lanc.t Allgood & Mr Major Allgood about 9 years agoe, what writings his Father had relating that Trust were all delivered up, Mr. Major Allgood says he Remembers such a Commission but knows not of any Writings being delivered, Mr Lanc.t Allgood still says he never saw any such thing, I am sorry my <Eagerness herein> has had no better success, but I have done all I could in it in the time, with which I desire you’l acquaint Mr. <Blackett> for the post won’t allow me to write to him this night, In case I think of any other Information I can get herein <except> <fro..> Mr Cuth[ber]t Ogle who is now a broad, but he can know nothing of this matter except from the Ma[ste]r who directed the drawing his Lease, Mr Collingwood promises to make the strictedst inquiry, & if he can find any Counterpart, or Copy to transmit it the next post.  

      I am yours etc  J R
