Half moon street Piccadilly


Hon[ou]rd Sir      By your Letter of Tuesday last, and by what I learn from some here who sent Bills to London on Saturday senight and have not yet received advice of them. I apprehend some accident may have happened to the  Newcastle bag of that Post: therefore lest you should not have received the Letter I wrote the  9th instant in answer to that you sent from Northalerton, I have here inclosed a copy of it. and am etc  Hen Richmond.
