Dear Sir/

No. <82> Hatton Garden 28th Feby. 1793

In the <case> of Sr. Thos. Blacketts Will

I have been waiting with great uneasiness for the Moment which is now come, that is to inform you of Mrs. Bosvilles Answer being Signed and Returned to me, I make no doubt, the long Absence you have experienced will lead you to suspect, my proper attention to this Bus[ines]s but believe me I have used my utmost endeavours to push the Business on – The Young Bosvilles I am persuaded have been at a considerable expense in Searchg. for Recoveries &c suffered by Sir Thomas, previous to the Signature of Mrs B. but all avails nothing in the present instance no Argument could hinder the Proof of the Will, and the Answers being now put in We may proceed to Examine the Wit[nesse]s – I will therefore as soon as possible send down the Com[mission]n and Interrogatories that the Business may be soon concluded –

I am Dr. Sir

Your very hble Servt.

Anth J Watts
Recipient unclear but presumably, from context, Mark Skelton
