Mr Wm. Alvey Darwin Grays Inn London                    Newcastle 1st September 1761

Sir     On Saturday last I sent directed for you the answers of Sir Wr Blackett & the Kirkheaton tenants, all but Jno. Moraley junr., by one Willm. Turnbull serv[an]t to Mr <Mw> Bell & who will deliver to you I expect on Fryday or Saturday next. I gave the young man 5s. with it for his trouble & hope you will receive it in time to comply with the peremptory order of the court. Young Moraley was so wrong headed, that tho he heard the answ[e]r read over & said he had no objection to it yet he absolutely refused to sign, notwithstanding he was told what might be the consequence. I am etc HR
