Dear Sir

	I have this day sent Messrs Child & Co a Bill for Ninety Pounds due the 18th instant which will be one Years Interest on Sir Thomas Blacketts Bond to you for £2000 due the 2d instant.  As I was uncertain of your being in Town I thought it advisable to send the Bill to your Banker to whom I have inclosed a Receipt for you to sign when you come to Town.

                                                                                            I am etc      JEB
