To Thos. Lampton Esqr. at Sedgewick                    Newcastle  Octobr 11 1733


Last Monday Mt Carr shewing the way I took that opportunity of declaring my self a Candidate at the next Elec[ti]on; I shall be proud of having your Intrest upon the Occasion, & shall take all opportunity’s of acknowledging the obligation, I have been so long absent that I fear Winship hath had too much opportunity of following his own humour & breeding the Beagles too long leg’d, I cannot say I have ever had so good a Pack as when I had them from you but am going this morning to Wallington to see how they perform.  Thiendor dy’d last week & am    Sr  yours etc Wr. Blackett
