To Mr Chris. Johnson Attorney at Law in Durham					25th Janry 1760	


	I was talking to you when here, that as the house in Hornsby Chair was burnt down, Sir Wr Blackett must soon sell on or rebuild but he can do neither till he obtains a declaration of trust from Mr Wilkinson, whom I have spoke to by Sir Wrs directions and he says if you will prepare one he will execute it when he comes to Durham wch I suppose you will be able to do fm the schedule of the deeds, that you have, there being only being a lease and release.  Sir Wr desires this matter may be got done before Mr Wilkinson goes southwards.  

	I expect Sir Wr will in a few days name a Life to be insisted in the Redburn lease; as soon as he does you shall know it.  I am &c    HR
