Sr, I own your favour of the 13th inst. & am sorry to find the money wch has been remitted Mr Clark is not applyd as you intended & I could have wished he had done, I hope that Money will be repaid by my Ld Tankerville in time to answr the demands upon you and prevent any slur being cast upon the trust, wch it is a pity so just a handle should be given for according to your order I inclose you three bills for the sum of twelve hundred & fifty eight pounds 16s 5d as above. If your Occasions require I hope they may be discounted upon better terms than carriage and hazard of sending the money by the Carrier. I shall take care to make up two thousands pds with all expedition in bills if possible if not in Money by the Carrier.
