To Mr Denton                                      Newcastle 20th May 1733

Dear Sr.

I desire you will wait upon Mr. Mansell, & pay him £200 for Lady <Barb.as> half years Annuity due Lady day last, which will be so much made good by you in part of the £300 you say you have drawn on me pay[a]ble to Mr Hylton, & pray send Mr. Mansells Receipt in a Post or two, as within written, or to that purpose; I desire you’l settle with Mr Mansell what’s in Arrears upon the £50 p[er] ann[u]m & let me his demand. The Trustees agree to pay it without putting him to any further trouble or Expence agreeable to Mr Blacketts desire. The £100 which will remain in your hand I will draw on you in little time, & also give you what further Information I can get ab[ou]t Storeys Affair, but I conclude what you have already received is sufficient to prevent any further proceedings upon that account, I rec[eive]d Mrs Bulls Lre  of Attorney, but Clayton tells me he can pay no money before Lammas. I am etc                              JR

P.S.. Since I wrote the above: Mr Allgood tells me he wants 100 to be return’d into your hands, pray therefore send to me a Receipt for £100 received of me on his account; and as soon as your bill comes to my hand I will return it to you.
