To Mr Wm Alvey Darwin, Greys Inn, London					Newcastle 25th Janry 1760


	By Sir Walter's direction I have I have sent by Lee the London Carrier this Day three Trunks directed to you, wch Sir Wr desires you will take care of and says he will write you about them soon.  You need not pay the carriage of them, only let us know that you receive them safe and we shall pay the Carrier when he returns hither.  The 3 keys belonging to these trunks are sent by Mr Ridley's butler directed to you and underneath to Sir Walter, who says you may give the servant half a crown when he brings you them, wch you will place to his acct.

	I hope you are preparing matters about Kirkheaton, because when Sir Wr comes to London, wch will be in about a month, he will want to know how the case appears and to have some opinion taken upon his claim to the estate.  He bids me write, that if you have occasion to search the offices of record Mr Rooks of the Rolls Chapel, he is informed by Mr Allgood, is one of the fittest persons you can employ having much practice in those matters.   Pray do you hear whether Mr Craister has filed his bill or moved for a receiver.  

	My father has recd of Mrs Widdrington Eight Guineas for you and has placed it to your acct.  I have given her a Receipt for it   I am &c     HR

PS I have told Sir Wr that you have paid Mr Gorges his money.
