I am favoured with your of the 2d & had a Lre of the Same date from Mrs Blackett about her annuity, who you must give me leave & refer back to you, for I yesterday received Ld Tankervilles money, bills are so scarce that I cannot procure you return for any part thereof at present but if I cannot speedily must send you up what you please to order by the carrier. Mr Allgood tells me that in order to pay Mr Blackett he had desired you to make up the £64 .15.0 remitted you In my last wth some money of his, she seeming to be straitened for her money. Taylors note for £46 is what I heard nothing of before unless it be the same that Mr Ra. Trotter applied to you about when here. The family returned here from Wallington on Wednesday last & its talk’d have thoughts of coming up to Town about Xmas. Sr John Swinburn & his family set forward pr.y. so this morning Mr Cuth Swinburn’s death I fancy is no news to you

				I am				yours 	JR
