To Mr. Denton                                     Newcastle 21st Aprill 1733


I own your favour of the 17th, with the Inclos’d Toast, which I assure you relishes very well here, for I believe scarce a Town in England has shewn greater Demonstration of joy upon the late Victory than has the Town of Newcastle. As to the case of the George Inn in Gateshead, that cannot but be assured that whatever service I can do you or any Friend of yours; you may command me, & as to Captn. Midfords ½ y[ear]s Annuity due Candlemas last, if you can draw upon me without expense do it & send me his receipt attested by you, if you can’t do that I will remit you a bill for the Value upon Receipt of his Note, tho I can assure you Bills are difficult to get here at present. As you want an affidavit of the Witnesses ages named in the Boundary bill, you must write to Mr. Allgood for it, for he is near upon the spott & will get you that quickest Return, Inclos’d is a bill to answer Mrs. Isab[ell]a Blacketts half y[ea]rs Annuity due May day next for One hundred pounds, I beg the Favour of God to procure me her receipt for the same.    I am       J.R.    

Sr.                                                  Newcastle Mar: 27th 1733

Enclosed        Forty days after date pay to Mr. Jos. Richmond, or order, One hundred pounds

J. Richmond  Value received & place it to Acco[un]t as by advice from your most humble Servant  H: Reay                                100.0.0

To James Creed Esqr. Merchant in London
