To Mr Tho Robinson,

Sr, Your answer to Mr Mand is very surprising when you know I have your order for the delivery of the lead and everything else that is necessary to recover the money by law. What can be the reason of this usage? I beg you will let me know pr return of the post for I am unwilling to acquaint either Mr Blackett or the trustees with your answer sent me by Mr Mand, till I am assured there is no mistake in it, which I am willing to believe there certainly must. For to declare positively you’l never pay the bill aftersuch kind usage is aomething more than I can understand the meaning of, if you have been at any expence by Sr Wm Blackett durections or desire upon the last Election affair why have you not sent the particulars of your demand & tendred the Balance or do you expect the whole money will be but an equivalent, I beg you answer pr Tuesdays Post at furthest if I am to expect at all, you know I am only an Agent therefore answerable for my actions to those Imploy me, & may perceive by the Lre inclosed you that those Gentlemen think I have been very Slak in letting this Debt stand out so long, I shall waut the time above in the hope of your answer

		& am		J. Richmond
