To Mr. Allgood					Newcastle 9th Ap.l 1731


      Last Night I reced your Lre of the 1st inst, on my Return from the mines pursuant to which I have examined Lady Barbara’s Mrs Bruces, & Mrs Isabella Blacketts accounts, & find that what you mention to be charg[ed] by Mr Clark under those heads does not inte[r]fere with either your payment or mine; except Mrs Isabella Blacketts half Years Annuity due May 1729 which you charge to be paid by you, & for which I believe you have her Receipt. As to the Charge I sent you on Mr Clark it contains all the payments I have made him, <all> that you have given me acco[un]t to be made him by your self & what you wrote me he has rece[iv]ed of Mr Cook as on the other side, but as to what other sums he may have rece[ive]d I am a strainger to it.

      Mrs Huntley reced your Lre, Mrs Vazey came here on Monday & returned to Hexham yesterday morning, so that I did not see her, Mrs Huntley tells me she wrote by last Post & that you will receive a Lre from Mrs Vazey by this, I am heartly glad to hear Mrs Allgood is so well recovered, & wish every days addition to it.
