Watson’s bill wch I hope will be paid before this comes to hand, the Latter requiring a return of £378 5s 0d to pay off the mortgage on Winlington Colliery wch will shortly be made good to Mr Clark, I shall take care to answer his bill for the money you say he has taken up & you may with my best respects assure Mr Clark that as soon as I can raise money I will remit him Sufficient to discharge al Demand for it will be no pleasure to me to keep it by me but the Demand for lead is still so small the Rents are so badly paid & the Demands from the mines & mills at this Season so great that I have for some time been hard put to make things answer, but its to be hoped trade will here revive & money consequently comes in better, Mrs Bella Blackett has desired Mr Allgood to remit her Annuity due 24 prox[im]a against the 6th she being a going into the Country wch he has order’d me to comply with, I therefore inclose you a bill for £100 payable at 3 days sight as follows wch I desire you’l be pleased on receipt to deliver her I would not have given you the trouble but that being told she has left her old Lodgings I don’t know now to direct to her certainly, You’l please to take her Lre of advice to me, on her receiving the bill & inclose or transmit it to 		&c		JR
