Mr Collingwood Forster [Att]orney at Law in Alnwick                               Newcastle 2nd April 1762


   I am sorry we can’t have the pleasure of seeing you here before the meeting at Wallington which agreeable to your Letter is fixed to be on Tuesday the 13th inst. for the Tenants, but Sir Robt. Bewicke will be there about noon on Monday the 12th in order to adjust with you any thing that may be wanting and therefore I hope you will be there as soon that Day as you can conveniently. My brother and I will be there I expect before you.

   I have been this morning with Mr Widdrington; and that terms which he is willing that Sir Robt. shall offer the Tenants are as follows. That they shall be discharged from all Rents and arr[ea]rs of Rent due at <mart[inmas]>. And that Sir Walter Blackett shall repay them all the Rent <…………> received of them. But that S[i]r Robt shall not indemnify them ag[ains]t the money <they paid> to Lord Windsor but only pay Sr. Wr. his costs in money and give him <……….> of indemnity in such form as Mr Widdrington will send you by Sunday <………..> and as to the Tenants Sr. Robt. is only to give them a Bond of indemnity ag[ainst] money they shall pay hereafter to him. And this Mr Widdrington hopes will <procure> the delivering up of Sr. Wrs. Bonds. I have desir’d him to return your <draft> of the Bond with any observation etc that he thinks necessary to make upon for fear lest this proposal made today, may not be feazable and to the End <ma……> we may be provided ag[ains]t the perverseness of the Tenants. I shall only add that it is very unlucky we cannot see you here before the meeting < I am etc HR>
