To Mr Denton							Newcastle 21st April 1734

Dr Sr

This day Mr Blackett told me of the Acc[oun]t w[hi]ch is to be paid the 1st May & said he would write you by this Post to desire you would endeavour to get the mony in London, & draw upon him for it here, where bills are not to be got for any Sum. As you say you want to draw for £200. I hope you will be able to make it £400 without any unreasonable premium, since you may draw at sight if ought can be (saved) thereby, but 15 or 20 days would do much better, for I know not yet where to find the money. I wait your answer. I am etc  		J.R.
