To Sir Wr Blackett Bt at Wallington Newcastle 12th Aug 1760

Honrd Sir

I am sorry I omitted to acquaint you last post that all matters are agreed with Mr Jeffreys and partns: Mr Browne and I waited on the two Mr Lisles and they were both at last satisfied that the collry should be given up at Martinmas next, and that the letter wrote to you by Mr Jeffreys etc was suff[cien]t security for the rent. And as to the condition the collry is in both parties are content it shall be refered to Mr Robsons single report when he goes to Berwick, so I hope you will have no more trouble on this acct. But Mr Robt Lisle desired Mr Robson would call on him at Morpeth before he goes to Berwick, for what reason he did not say.

Lord Carlisle’s Agent has prevailed on one of the Benton tenants to attorn and I hear Mr Bewick Mr Fawcett, Mr Collingwood and Mr Widdrington were among them yesterday, I am not certain what they got done but have some reason to believe they got some of them to attorn to Mr Bewick. 

I am Honrd Sir JR
