To Mr Collingwood Forster

Attorey at Law in Alnwick

Sir       My Brother shewed me a Letter on Sunday, which he was going to send you by that post; to acquaint you of Sir Robt Bewick’s desiring you would meet at Wallington on the 12th of next month to settle the Turn-Over of Kirkheaton from Sir Wr. Blackett to him, but I had not then Time to write any thing. And all I have to say now is, that you are best judge whether it may not be proper for us to see you here before the meeting at Wallington. perhaps somethings may want adjusting; and I find Mr. Widdrington will not be able to go with us. Pray will there not be some difficulty about the Indemnification of the Tenants against the money, which they paid Lord Windsor; especially as part of that money was due to Mrs Windsor; I hear Sir Robt. does not intend to secure either Sir Wr or the Tennants against this Dem. I am etc    HR.
