Mr Ord,

I cannot help thinking that the Security is sufficiently answerable for the sum thereupon to be raised; but howver for additional satisfaction there are no judgements, Statute, Recognizance or mortgage entered into by me, but one of about fifteen hundred pounds; of which I hope to be out of the Collected estates there may be room enough for the payment. If I should have an opportunity of selling Winlington your information whether in your opinion I am att liberty so to doe will much oblige

	Sr your most Humble Servt

		Wm Blackett

May 28th 1719
