To Mr Wm Alvey Darwin Greys Inn London				Newc 30 Nov 1759

Inclosed is Airey &c  bill on Messrs Vere Glyn and Hallifax for 225£ which I desire you will place to my acct  and advise the receipt of and when Mr Vernon calls upon you pay Lady Mansels ½ yrs annty due 10th last month and when I receive the rest I will give you 6s for it and advise you thereof.  I desire the reciept may be made recd of Sir Wr Blackett by my hand and you will witness it, that it may be a proper voucher to my acct with Sir Walter

As you have all the materials we have been able to collect here from the abstracts and other papers in my office and have also I presume the original Grants &c in yr custody relating to Anick grange you will best judge what searches are necessary to be made.  I am afraid you will not find  any particular grant of Anick grange manor between 1620 and 1632 for if there was any such grant it must certainly be among the writings in your hands and we sh[oul]d therefore have had most probably a copy of it here but however it will be right to search it must therefore be well coonsidered if no particular grant can be found whether grant of Hexham in 1632 does not include the manor of Anick grainge      But then why Sr J.Fenwick should stile himself lord of that manor in 1622 is what I do not understand the reason of      As to the grant of Kirkheaton 10th James 1st  it will be prudent to search for it to know whether Mr Craister has set forth the contents there of right in his bill     You must also examine whether Sir Jno  Fenwick conveyed the manor to Cuthb Heron wch I much question he did tho' Heron conveyed it to Sir Bd Stote, these last deeds I imagine are in Mr Peals hands and may be got a sight of on Sir Wr desiring it of Lady Windsor and when you have examined into all of these particulars you will be able to lay a state of the case before council for their opinion     I presume you have Sir Wrs directions to correspond for the future with Mr Coll.d Foster on this affair as Mr Scott must be concerned with Ld Northumberland     I have had no Lre from Sir Wr since I received yours but to be sure the £500 you mention he will order to be returned to you in time       If Mr Beaumont should offer to pay me part of the £200 what right have I to take it without a particular order   I have had a great deal of trouble in riding after Mr Beaumont for the last two years wch I shall expect to be paid for out of the money in my hands	I am &c JR
