I have received from London by this post, Sir Wr Blackett’s bond to Mrs Mary Loraine for fifteen hundred pounds; which is dated the 28th instant, & which I am ready to exchange for the money, whenever she thinks proper: it ought to be soon, as the intrest is running on. As to what you say about £30000 it must either be wrong, or the Security bad; for I know a Gentleman wants to lend that Sum & would take less intest than 4 ½ p[er]C[en]t[um] on good security. I hope to hear from you by the return of the post & am etc    HR
