Sir     Mr Willm. Brown who is concerned as a viewer for some of our Coalowners, has made a proposal to Sir Wr Blackett for the taking of Kenton Coll[ie]ry copy of wch is herewith inclosed. But he did not think proper to discover on whose acco[un]t the proposal is made, wch it is necessary to know before any treaty is ent[e]red into for he himself is not equal to the undertaking. Sir Wr thinks the certain rent sho[ul]d not be less than 300 [g/£] a year & the tentail rent not under 14 or 15s as the Ten is very large. I expect Mr Brown will be with Sir Wr again in a few days & let him know who are his principals & their resolution as to this rent & wch shall be communicated to you for your consideration by. Sir your etc  JR
