Postscript to the above letter  4 Janry 1772

  Sir Wa Blackett bids me to add a postscript, that finding the Subscriptions in this Neighbourhood for the relief of sufferers by the late Inundations are not extended to Yorkshire - he is desirous of subscribing £50 to be paid to the Committee in the Co of York for the relief of sufferers by the late Inundations, to be applied by them as they should think fit- Accordingly. I have sent you inclosed Bell and Cos bill on Glyn & Co for Fifty pounds which I shall be obliged to you if you will advise me by return of post you have reced.

  I am etc                                                                                                        HR
