To Mr Ralph Robinson at Sunderland                  Newcastle   11 Octobr 1733

Sir     Last Monday Mr Carr shewing the way gave me an unavoidable opportunity of declareing myself a Candidate for the Town at the next Elec[ti]on for Members to serve in Parliament. The Favour which you have been pleas’d to shew to this Family<upon> the like occasion, I hope you will be so good  as to continue to one, who with great severity will lay hold of the earliest & every opportunity of professing himself.

                                                      Sr. yours etc    Wr. Blackett
