Stanhope Tuesday Night

My Lord

      I have just now received information wch I think may be depended upon, that Mr Blackets People intend to come to an Agreement with your Lordship, & that they will be at Durham this week. 

      I am not able to get any Account at all what Terms they design to offer; But thought proper to send this information, tho I hope to be able to wait upon your Lordship before they come. I must add, that upon further Inquiry I am fully assured of the Truth of what I mentioned concerning the good Condition of the Grove they opened in Stanhope Park

      I am My Lord Yr Lordships	most dutiful	most obedient	humble Servt

      J. Butler
Given that Joseph Richmond wrote to Lancelot Allgood on 15 Aug 1732 that an agreement had been closed worth the Bishop the day before, this letter can probably be dated 13th August, which was a Sunday
