To Mr Rich Ellis at Hexham 4th Nov 1760


Sir Wr Blackett desires you will enquire of Mr Crowhall [sic; Crawhall] who was lately Grove steward at Fallowfield, whether he is engaged with any body at present for if he is intirely at liberty Sir Wr has so good an opinion of him that he inclines to offer him a post in his service. If therefore he is disingaged I desire you will tell him that when he comes to Newcastle I should be glad to see him, but there is no necessity for his coming on purpose, as Sir Wr is gone to London and may not return these three weeks, only I should know whe[the]r he has entered into any engagements. 

I am HR
