To Sir Wr Blackett Bt at Wallington 						29th Janry 1760

Hond Sir

	Hesitation at any orders you please to honour me with will I hope ever be taken as proceeding only fm consideration of yr interest.

	The materials wch I collected fm such papers and deeds as are in your office and your study relating to the Manors of Hexham and Anick grainge in order for Mr Darwin to form a case from, lay open many doubts about Several Rights you claim in those Manors and even about your title to hold the Courts at Anick Grainge to wch Mr Allgood owes suit &c for some Estates in that Manor.

	I thought it therefore my duty to mention that if Mr Allgood sho[ul]d happen to take a copy of these materials, and it fall into other hands some inconvenience may ensue.  But I have sent them herewith that if you think me needlessly apprehensive they may be sent him from Wallington. I sent Mr Darwin the trunks and keys and wrote him about them and also about Mr Rooke  I am 			

							Hon Sir yr faithful and obd servt     HR
