Sir          								Janry 22

      Tis now above 5 weeks Since I inclos’d you a Lettr to my Son Nedd with a bill of Exchange being for £20, and desir’d you in case he was not in Town to open the Lettr and take out the Bill and Receive the money, but since that time I never Recd one Syllable from you, tho’ I have writ to you post after post to know whether you Recd the Bill & where my son Nedd was, whether at London or Portsmouth; I perceive my Lettrs are very troublesome to you Seeing you’ll not vouchsafe to give me an Answer of one of them in 5 Weeks time and am Resolved neither to give myself nor you the trouble of any more of my Lettrs, tho’ I would willingly know if it be not too much trouble to you that you Recd the Bill and gave it my Son or no, & where he be   I am yr Servt

Mr Samp. Smirk
