To Sr. Walter Calverly Bar[one]t                             Newcastle the 16th February 1732/3

Hon[ou]rd Sir

      Inclos’d is a Copy the Trustees Answer as it stands now altered by Mr Grey, & Mr. Allgood, from Mr Wilson’s Draught. It was sent up last post to Mr Denton to be laid before Mr Fenwick. I gave Mr Blackett notice thereof, & sent him as near an Estimate as I can make of what the surpluss of the Estate has been since his Marriage, An Acco[un]t of what part thereof he has received, & a particular of what Money, Debts, & Arrears of Rent are remaining to make good that part he has received short, I can only guess at Mr Allgood’s Arrears etc because I have rece[ive]d no Acco[un]ts thereof for the last year I am preparing the acco[un]ts & schedules mentioned in Mr Allgoods Answer, shall be ready so farr as I am concerned at a <hours> warning, & I wish a speedy conclusion of the affair.

      I cannot yet fathom what steps Mr. Ridley intends to take, he pretends to be very angry, & complains of Dissrespect, but Mr Blackett has much more Reason to complain thereof from him, but his little misunderstanding occasioned by Mr Clarkes too hasty delivery of Mr Blacketts Lre , will no doubt be compriz’d as soon as they meet. I shall send you tomorrow by the Carrier a pack of Port Wine as below.    

      J Richmond
