Hon[ou]r[e]d Sir

Major Carr has paid me Six hundred pounds for your use; which I have given him a receipt for and Charged in my Cash Account; he desires to have a Bond for the whole £900 when you come to Town and to give up the other Bonds.

Dr Sharp has sent a Copy of the papers he mentioned, w[hi]ch I shall bring on Monday; though I do not see they amount to much.

The Motion was made to day in Comon Council by the Mayor, and agreed to unanimously, that you & Mr Ridley should be thanked for your Conduct in Parliament this Sessions; but Mr Blacketts Letter will give the particulars of the Resolutions and of Mr Ridley’s Letters to the Mayor, this post, better than I can do.

TheRecorder was not in Town to Day. I am etc    HR
