To John Fenwick Esq at Roberts Place near Brotham Barr York	Newcastle 13th Nov 1759


Inclosed you receive my bill on Plumbe and Brown for 37.0.0 and Mr Douglas's rec[iep]t for 3.0.0 pd him by your order; wch makes up your half years in[tere]st on Sir Walter Blacketts bond due 12th inst; wch I desire you advise the rect of by the return of the post as the bill is at so short a date, and mention that it is in full for that ½ yrs intr[es]t. The principal money will be ready for you the 12th May tho Sir Wr wo[ul]d have kept it longer if you had not called it in, and I think it cannot be better secured than where it is, as you have yr interest punctually paid as it becomes due, wch perhaps may not be the case when you change hands   When the money is paid the assignment of the bond to Mr Ward must be cancelled and he must join with you in signing the sect. on the back of the Bond to prevent any dispute that might otherwise possibly happen, so you will take care to prepare Mr Ward that there may be no stop on that acc[ou]nt     I do not certainly know whether Sir Wr might not agree to give you 4 1/4 P.cent for a year or two longer, or till such time as notice is given on either side as trade is now bad and he can make use of the money.  You may therfore let me know yr resolution on that head and I will send you his answer in 10 or 12 days.

I am &c JR
