Sir Robert Carr  Baro[ne]t Bath                                      Newcas  3rd March  1778

Dear Sir     I received your Favour & observe that it was the £1200 on the late Sir Walter Blacketts Bond to Sir William Carr that you wrote about & not the £1200 on Bonds to your Brother Major Carr; Indeed I did apprehend that you meant the latter & I flattered myself that you had been prevailed on to Act as Trustee for the late Majors Children; however the former Sum shall be paid in London to Mr Rich[ar]d Carr Glyn by Mr Thomas Wall Paper Buildings in the Temple the 1st of June next if you insist on it: but it will be more convenient to Sir John Trevelyan to pay it the 1st Sept. next.

     You will please to favour me with your Answer which will oblige etc       J E B.
