To Richard Wilson Esq at Leeds                                                 Newcas. 30th Decr. 1771



  On the 13th instant I sent you a Bill for Three hundred pounds on Account of your Kenton Rents; of which the above is a Copy: but have had no Letter of Advice that you have received it

As you know well the Equity of my requiring a Receipt for money remitted you, I am satisfied you would have wrote me directly, or at least have ordered your Clerk to have done so, if you had received the bill therefore If I do not receive an Account by the return of the post that you have got it, I shall conclude it has miscarried & get the Drawers to send a proper Caution to Glyn & Co about the payment till they hear from us.

  Ps I beg leave to wish you many happy years

I am etc                                                                                                       HR
