To Mr Chris Johnson Attorn at Law in Durham					1st Febry 1760


	I have sent you herewith a copy of Robt Cays release of the house in hornsby Chair as you desired, and I hope you will get the declaration of trust done and executed by Mr Wilkinson before he goes to London.     I see by old Mr Wilkinsons acct in 1719 that he made himself D[eb]tor to Sir Wm Blackett for 634£.7.8 wch he had recd by household goods etc in the part of Cays debt from the first of that transaction to that time, and he refers to a book of particulars kept of this matter: which we shall want I apprehend when we come to treat 10th the present Mr Cay about the Equity of redemption.  This book must be in the boxes wch we returned you, and Sir Walter desires you will look for it and if Mr Wilkinson has no objection you will sent it me, and he will pay you for your trouble in these affairs whenever you please.    PS Mr Davison died before Mr Wilkinson so I imagine the trust devolving on the survivors it will only be necessary for the representative of the sd Mr Wilkinson to convey, Will you please return the copy of the release as it will be wanted for Mr Cay

			I am etc    HR
