Dear Kitt

      I reced yors. with yor. Brother Savells Letter Inclosed as also his directions, wch. I have exactly persued, & have got three of thm. Executed, wch. you’l receive from Mr. Ridsdale who Sets forward for London on Monday next. Inclose each of thm. by  - 3 – Severall Ships & the first that goes, & desire yor. Brothers perticular care to gett me my whole debt & rather than fail to compound for the most he can get, I gave Mr. Ridsdale a Bill upon you for – 40l, & as Soon as my dear Mitty goes into Cheshire must give my Lord Warrington a small Bill upon you for –under -30l

      Yor. Intelligence of the price of Lead is a great mistake, for I am offered for – 1000 – peices at London – 9L & only – 20 – days Credit, & I doubt not but as Soon as the Commerce Bill is past, Lead will rise to -10L – at least

      Upon recept hereof if you have not got the 29L Sue the Bondsman, I much wonder you Should give Soe long time, yor. attorney did not deal well by you, for after Bail is given, in case the money be not pd, you may arreast the Bail at any time, I have discharged Mr Brumell of my Service, wch I wish I had done – 12 – months Since, wth my blessing to yourself & Family & Service to all Friends I am

	Yor. most affectionate Father
