To Sir W[alte]r Calverly Bart.                              Newcastle 6th Febry 1732/3

Hon[ou]rd Sir

      I have delivered the Draught you sent me, to Mr Grey, who promises to dispatch it with the Expedition, & Mr Allgood being now here, says every thing will be ready against next Term, you may depend upon every Act of mine, which can anyway influence a quicker Dispatch.

      In Mr Allgood  Acco[un]ts (which are not signed by Mr Blackett)  he distinguishes what preceeds Sir Williams death from what follows after, but if it shall be desirable to carry that distinction to Mr. Blacketts in our age it may easily be done thos the former if it meet wch not by even will be  more his Intrest because from Sir Wms death to Mr Blacketts marriage the profits of the Estate were mostly saved which has enabled us to make our pays a little quicker than formerly, My Ma[ste]rs Lres to the freemen of this place were delivered last week & most of the Comp[an]ys have met on that acco[un]t. The favourable reception they carry they every were meet with leaves no Room to doubt of success, tho[ugh] I doubt wee shall not find Ald[erma]n Ridley a friend in the affair; Its talked that Mr Carr will in a little time begin to treat publickly, but Mr Blackett will have no occasion to do so, till he come down, & then it will be expected, On Saturday last I sent by Warbutton 5 doz[e]n French Wine at 30s a doz[e]n which I hope will prove good. Mr Stephenson has some very good Old Port, if you please I shall choose you you a h[ogs]h[ea]d or any other quantity, you shall direct, I have acquainted Dr. Thomlinson & Mr Wilkinson with your D[aughter]s marriage, I wish all possible happiness may attend it & am etc.   J : R
