To Mr Chris Denton Greys Inn London			Newcastle 23rd June 1732


I desire you will let me know by the Return of the Post, what is done w[i]th Mr Bull about Fenw[ic]k Lamberts House, we have had the Offer of several good tenants, w[hi]ch are now provided, because matters not being concluded, we could not put the House into Repair, w[hi]ch I declare is actually £20 worse than when I contracted for it with Mr Steel, for all the Windows, Shutters, hangings etc are broke & tore to pieces, and all the Young Trees quite spoiled by the Children getting in to the Yard, w[hi]ch I did all in my power to prevent, but could not be at any expence abut it till sure it belonging to Mr Blackett. I shall be very glad if you confirm, what Mr Ward tells me yesterday, that you Intend to be here at our assizes, I presume he will respite payment of your 10 Guin[eas] till that time, Mr Blackett & Mrs Blackett sett forward on Wednesday for Calverley & after they will proceed for Scarborough, I should be glad to hear what Effect the Article lately executed is like to have, & whether the Present Bill can be amended so, that the Lady's Answers may stand good, or that a new one must be filed, w[hi]ch would occasion a great Expense, I just now called upon Mr Grey, who was in the Country when Mr Blackett went away, he gives it as his opinion that the present Bill will do, w[i]th the amendm[en]t of that part only which calls Mr Allgood to Acco[un]t.  I am etc  J.R.
