Dear Sir

Hatton Garden 22d. Decr. 1792

Beaumont agt. Bosville <Voy.>

	I herewith send you the Bill herein together with the Ansr. of Dr. De Chair and <...> and also the Ansr. proposed for Mrs. Bosville’s Signature but who thro her Sons interference in the Business seems the most litigious party, in short after I had Ingrossed her Ansr she objected to sign the same and then wished to do as Dr. De Chair and Wife had done and sign a similar Ansr. to theirs, I accordingly drew such an Answer and saw her previous to her leaving Town, but her Son not being in the way she refused Signing – I then left the Ansr. with her and also the Dr[aft]s of Ansrs. of Dr. De Chair & <..> who had previously signed the same that they might be fully convinced it was a similar Ansr. and told her I would call again the next Day and after calling two or three times I now find the Son objects to one word which when altered he will send his Mother to sign, I therefore mean to see him on Monday when I hope to put the Buss. forward and will do my utmost to get her Ansr. in – I cannot get the Comm[issio]n till the 15th of Janry being the next Seal but I should apprehend there is no Occasion for Mrs. Walker to put in her Ansr. on Oath it not being required of the other parties, but if I hear nothing from you to the contrary will send the <Commn.> Directed as required

      I remain Dst. Sir in haste

      Your very Hble Servt.

      Anth J Watts

P.S. pray take Care of Dr. De Chair & <..> Ansr. as you’ll perceive it is signed by them
Recipient unclear but presumably, from context, Mark Skelton
