Inclosed are two bills, as above, for nine hundred and fifty five pounds. That for Four hundred and ninety five pounds is for Mr Savage’s half Year’s int[ere]st due the 6th of next month and to be placed in the mean time to my Acco[un]t & advised of accordingly. The other for Four hundred & Sixty pounds is on Account of the quarterly payments which you have to make for Sir Wr Blackett to the 31st Decemr next and you will please to place it to his Account and send me the usual receipt for it. I don’t doubt but you will get the int[e]r[es]t of the Mortgagees on Kenton discharged in time to save the additional intrest – the next payment to those Mortgagees will, I suppose, be made by Mr Wilson.
