Sir      I received yours of the 31st Ulto. inclosing me Mr Trevelyan’s bill on me for Forty Pounds, payable to you or Order, at Sight; wch. I have placed to our Acct. & to balance this Article I here inclose you Bell Cookson & Cos. Bill on Glyn & Hallifax for Forty Pounds; which you will place accordingly and advise me so.  Mr Tevelyan should have wrote me about this Bill - that it was for Interest due from Sir Wr. Blackett to him; for at present it is not a proper voucher - you say he is gone out of Town so I must be Content with It.  I have wrote by Sir Wr.’s direction to Mr Hill for a dozen hams & a Dozen hogs Cheeks   which I suppose will be paid for as usual by you; if that is the most convenient way for Mr Hill.

     Sir Walter set out on Saturday Morning last for London; I do not hear of my Brother going, nor know when you will get the Book he said he had bought for you.  But if you have a Mind I will buy one & find some means of conveying it to you.  PS. You see the Bill is dated as on tomorrow and will not be advised of till then: so should not be presented for Acceptance till the Day after you receive it.                   I am etc    HR
