For Mr Chas Clark

Mr Trenchard & Mrs Bella Blackett have drawne on me for 20 guineas each allowed them for mourning & the last post brou.t me a letter from Mrs Fran Blackett desiring a bill might be sent for her 20 guineas & also for her sister Marshall by Mr Allgood’s Ordr. I have sent her a Bill pr this post for her own 20 guin. But as for Mrs Marshall he orders it to be respited till such times as the caveat entered by Mr Marshall be withdrawn. Mr Allgood presents his service went this morning for Wallington where he will stay for 2 or 3 days & I believe will shortly after set forwards for towne. Presume he acquaints you with all transactions since my last otherwise I would have signified the same so farr as to my knowledge. Sr Walter is at present in Yorkshire with the rest of the family. I have 3 pieces of silver now by me wch I deferr sending Mr Cook as usuall till Mr Allgood get up to towne or hierr from you that he has pd the £200 bill snet you the 26 Nov there is a long acct depending with him wch in high time was settled.

      The discourse in the coffee houses runs pretty much on the affair of elections. It is said Coll Liddell declares will bring in his nephew Sr Haryy if a writ insure tho it cost £10000. Wee have at present no talk of Mr Calverley intending to stand candidate Mr Fenwick I hear set forwards for Londn this morning.
