Sir Thos. B of Bretton in the County of York (heretofore called Sir Thos. Wentworth) Bart.

Sir Walr Blackett died on the 14th of Feb: last.

It will certainly be right to give up the present Agreements, when the new ones are deliver’d.

      I am Sir, Your Most Obedient Servt.

      Wm Wilson

Newcastle July 30th 1777

The Rector of Stanhope has agreed to let Sir T.B. have the Tithe Ore upon the same Terms Sir Walr B. had it.
