Honrd Sir, 

Inclosed is Henry Coulsons bill on Mr Thos Stainbank for two hundred pounds wch please to advise the Receipt of, I find it was expected by the magistrates that you would have publickly declared your Intention of standing for the Town the day they last dined wth you but Mr Ridley, I am told, is the only one that calls it an omision, because it might have been of some use to his Designs, I am humbly of opinion it was as well let alone. Tis now talked Sir H: Liddle will make a very strong Intrest at Morpeth, & that he will be chose there without any great Expence,  I shifted the Coach & boxes on Thursday last wch I believe are in the River ere this, but sent your Clothes this day senight by the Carrier, all directed to the care of Mr Robt Long. The Leeds Carrier brings 3 dozn of the Macmorrans Claret signifyd in Sir Ws Lre of the 9th. I have not yet got the Article about Kenton. I am etc    J.R.

P.S.  You Subscribed 4 guins a year towards the Education of Emmerson the hatter's son wch I have forebore paying for 12 m[onths], from a Report of his being expelled the College for some Male principles, he is at present under the care of Dr Eden, & its hoped will be bro[ugh]t to a better way of thinking, Dr Thomlinson knows the whole & is a subscriber but as he for the Reason above has withdrawn it, I desire to know whether you will continue yours.
