To Mr Darwin Grays Inn London		20th May 1760


Inclosed is Peareth and Sorsbies bill on Freeman and Stainbanks for 225£, wch I desire you will place to me acct and advice of receipt of. I send you this to pay Mr Vernon Lady Mansels <..> [years] annuity due last month, whose receipt I desire you will send me as soon as the money is paid. I shall be glad to know whe[ther] you have any opinion on the Kirkheaton affair, and if <..> Mr Caister intends to try the cause at our assizes, for I am quite a stranger to what is doing about it. As you have Mr Forster in Town I doubt not but the matter will be well considered. I presume Sir Wr will have given you a Case about the cottages at Winlaton to take to Mr Norton's or some other council's opinion on at Sir Edward Blacketts request, who is equally concerned and must therefore pay half the costs I am etc JR
