Sir   I find by the Gazette wch came here last night that a Comission of Bankrupt  is awarded against Frazer & Wharton on whom Joseph King drew the Bill I sent you. I have seen him this Morning & if you have not sent the Bill to London he desires you will return it to me.& he will give me either another Bill or Cash as you choose. If the Bill should be gone to London I desire when you get it back that you will please to return it with the two Acco[un]ts I sent you;& then I shall as soon as I get an Equivalent of Messrs Kings remit it to you with other Acco[un]ts in lieu of those I sent you in my Letter of the 12th instant.

I am sorry for the delay which this Accident will occasion you in point of payment. But Mr King did always insist that in the Winter Half year his bill should be taken for the Rent. But that hereafter will be as you shall choose. I am he                                               H R
