      I Recd yrs per last post and I do very well remember that I did referr the Balance to yr Selfe but at the same time gave you one of yr own Letrs that did Agree to the price of the Lead which you were charg’d with, so I did not in the least question when you had Compar’d it with yr Acct. but you would have been satisfy’d, however the thing is not worth a Dispute so Shall say no more of it, I think the Balance of yr Cash Acct. is £1.6.10 so pray pay it to my Servt Mewburne.  I am Sir yr very humble Sevt.

Robt Fenwick Esqr Mayor of Newcastle
