	I have recd both yr lettrs. You have been so Extreamly kind in all my Concerns that I must always own those favours with all the Acknowledgements imaginable.

	You may perceive by the Inclosed that there is no money to be had at Newcastle under £5 ½ or 6 P Cent. So if Mr Peirse’s £1,000 might be depended upon at £5 or 5 ½ the Remainder might soon be raised. I would willingly hear you had got an Answer from Mr Harland, I writ last post to Lawyer Barnes who is a very considerable man in Newcastle and Expect his Answer in a little time wch shall inclose you. I believe Mr Adams knows the money is for me because Dr Johnson writes that he says twill be very inconvenient for the Gentleman to have that sum from sev’all hands because he knows that Newby lordship is the Security that I would give and tis not proper to Mortgage it to two people. I havea freehold Estate in Northumberland which is Security Enough for £1,000, besides there is Wood worth £500 upon’t wch I design to sell either this Spring or the next.

	I hear my Bro Yorke’s come down, and if you’ll go & make him a visit some day next week or the wek after I’ll call at yr house & wait on you thither, and pray let me know what time will be most convenient for you

	I am Sir yr ever obliged himble servt

Rev’d Mr Pemberton Bedale
