To  Walter Trevelyan Esq. at  Bessingby                          Newcas.  10 Janry  1770

    Near Burlington    Yorkshire

Sir     By your letter of the 25 of last month I find you have drawn a Bill upon me for £52.10s.0d which will leave only seventeen pounds nineteen shillings and sixpence of your money in my hands; so I shall not have enough to send you a Bill for £10 as you desire, in your last letter of the 5 instant.  In my letter of the 1st instant I sent you a receipt to sign & return when you pleased; which would have enabled me to send you the bill you desire, but lest my Letter may have miscarried inclosed is another; which you will please to sign and return against you want the Bill.  I have ordered five pounds of Mustard to be sent by the next Carrier to be left at Blewit’s in Lendale York, as you desire; and I have enquired about your portmanteau which Wm. Foster tells me he delivered within a day or two after you went from hence, to Geo. <Makin> the York Carrier; so that I hope you have received it before this time.

PS This is the last Frank.   I am etc   HR
