Mr Ord,

I was in great expectation of returning into the North before this time but am detained on an affair of Consequence wherefore must desire that the necessary deeds for the completing our agreement may be sent up here to be signed. In the Post in my opinion will be the most expeditious & properest method of sending them up, if directed to your Son. I hope to nobody you will divulge the Security; but if there should be any questions asked by one extraordinary Man of merit & superior Sense & Interst to the rest of Mankind; & that you should think it requisite to answer to him anything in relation to that affair I must desire you to acquaint him that there is such a bargain concluded & that Winlington Kenton Weldon Woodcroft are in the Security; but I leave, whatever proper answer you think fit to give to your own reflection only assureing you, that you are not much obliged to the Person above hinted att for his manner in expression It is the Solicitor General Is meant by

	Your friend sincerely & Humble Servant

	Wm Blackett

I am prodigiously in haist
