Sir	I have this day sent you by Jackson & Jennings the London Carriers a Piece fine Silver containing 1453 Ounces which I desire you will place to Account with Sir Thos Blackett Bart as usual and advise me on your Reciept of it.  I hope that you will allow me the best price as I have been very much pressed to supply a House in London with a quantity of Silver which I did not comply with.  I am informed that 5s 9d per O[unc]e was given on the beginning of this Month                                               I am etc   J.E.B
