Sir At the request of Mr Forster, I am desired to inform you, why Joseph Watson my late assistant was dismissed. It was solely for inattention. One reason chiefly for such conduct was the anxiety he felt, for losing his place when I came here, as he then was sole master, being made to believe, that I wanted his place. My mortification at getting is, was equal to his losing it. I wish you could get the remaining arrear of Rent from Kirsopp which is £1.4s.- I suppose it may be recovered next court I am Sir Your, very hble Svt Joseph Carr
Undated, probably 1794 based on the sequence of letters. It is possible that an enquiry into Watson’s position arose prior to having him named in the legal case referred to in letters of Feb 1794, so this one is dated to a few weeks before then.
