To Mr Wm Alvey Darwin No 8 Greys Inn London Newcastle 20th June 1760 Sir Above is a copy of a note wch Sir Walter has given Mrs Mary Mathews an old servant of Lady Blacketts. She leaves this place tomorrow and will be in London in 14 days when she will call upon you for her first half years payment due the 24th inst. Wch you will place to Sir Wrs acct and settle with her how the future payments are to be made. I did not know when I wrote my last letter that Lord Chief Baron was gone thro' this place into Scotland. I do not doubt but he has given Mr Lisle proper directions, tho he does not say he has, only writes to his brother to ask me if Sir Wr intends to defend the cause. I saw Mr Forster as he went thro' this town and expect to hear from him when he has got the papers belonging to Sir Wr from Mr Scott. As the dispute between Ld Northumberland and the town of Alnwick is compromised I am apt to think Mr Forster will accept of being one of his Lordships auditors, if it is offered him. I am etc. JR PS I have received Mr <Reedets> bill on Thos Natess and will send you the same for acceptance. I do hereby promise and oblige myself my heirs and executors to pay to Mrs Mary Mathews an Annuity of Ten Pounds a year during her natural life, to commence from Christmas next in consideration of her long service. Wr Blackett Newcastle 28th September 1759 Endorsed To apply to Mr Wm Alvey Darwin No. 8 Greys Inn London for the payment of the annuity.
