To Sir Wr Blackett at Wallington			                          NewC 13th March 1760

Hond Sir

I will remit to Mr Darwin 6 or 700£ in a post or two; as to what ans he is to give Mr Waldo, I presume you have given him direction.  I hope Mr Lascelles will agree continue to his money for some time longer.   Mr Robson was come away before I rcd the acct of Mr Ogles death and Dr Lambert was coming out with him, if the Dr had come sooner I believe he could have done him no service for he has been attended by Dr Fenwick who is esteemed a very knowing p[er]son in his profession and of whom Mr Ogle himself had always a better opinion than of Dr Lambert.   What I think will be wanted for the funeral I have ordered out and have given Mr Robson an account of them.    Mr Davidson's steward has just called upon me with a ring for you and Ten guineas left you by Mr Davidson of Ferryhill w[hi]ch I have sent you inclosed by James Kepple  I am   &c JR
