To Walter Blackett Esqr.                                    Newcastle April 3rd 1731

Hon[ou]rd Sir

      John Robinson shew’d me the Lre he sent you, but was then, & still is unwilling to give any acco[un]t of his scheme, till the £50 a year which I take to be the best part of it, is confirmed to him, I have told him that if he can lay down any proposals which appear feasible, he need not question your giving him Encouragement, but he says they shall remain a secret till he sees you, I have very little knowledge of him, further than that he’s been very unfortunate in the management of all his own affairs, & is very much reduced, but if you please to enquire of Mr Fenwick, I believe he knows him very well & can give you the best acco[un]t.

      I shall pursuant to your directions contrive a cold Bath after the best manner I can but am very sorry you should have any Occasion for it        I am        JR
