To Mr Ralph Forster at Wallington                                                Newcas.  5 May  1770

Sir    Mr Wm. Brown has sent to me today the inclosed notes for Walling[to]n & Denham Colliery & sent also some of the people for their money; but as I cannot pay Lady Loraine’s share nor know how much of the Charge of the Engine Sir Wr. intends to take upon himself I thought it best to put them & him off till this day senight in the morning when something must be done in it for Sir Wr.s credit, as some of the men are clamorous for their money.  So I must beg you will, if you can, come to town on friday Evening & and bring these Notes with you.  

                       I am etc    HR
