RH15/102/6/2/175(a). This is an abstract made by Standsfield which forms part of a longer summary of 21 separate letters of various dates from John Lindsay and Co in London that Standsfield drew up early in 1678 (see Lindsay to Standsfield, 9 Feb 1678). Although the writer is not named it is assumed from context to have been from John Lindsay.
