Newcastle 17th June 1732

My Lord

Upon my return from Berwick I found your Lordship had honoured me with a letter in my absence; I am sorry I was not master enough of business to have given a more speedy answer, I really was at a loss till I had made proper inquirys from our stewards in Weredale, which by reason of distance could not be immediately executed; I perceive there are other differences likely to arise, upon which account , if agreeable, I will do my self the honour to wait upon your Lordship on monday next.

      I am My Lord, You Lordships Most Obedient

      Wr Blackett
