To Mr Thos Robinson,

	Sir I did not doubt but you would have paid so much regard to your promise made me in Mr Alnwicks, as to have discharged Christian Christianson’s bill on you for £34 9s2d longer & then it is now upwards of 11 months since the lead was deliver’d him by your order of the 27 Aug 1728 wherein you promis’d to answer his draught on you at sight. When the bill was presented you in Sept last you did by lres dated 15 & 21 of that month also promise the imediate discharge thereof. I think you can’t but judge it high time the bill should be paid, neither can you be insensible of my <..emess> with you in this affair, proceeding from a Respect due as you were a Friend of Sr Wm’s, wch his Extors will no doubt attribute to my Remisness I therefore now desire you will pay or order the said bills to be paid me at Mr Reays shop sometime the next week & not give me any further trouble in Solliciting it as a Favour, wch I find you now begin to look upon it to be be. I also desire an ansr of what it is you charge the Extors with about the last election as I have before …. I beg you answer & Compliance as above but if you think proper to put me off any longer you’l pardon my representing thus affair to my Superiors & pursuing the Directions I shall receive thereat  …  I am  JR

PS. I shall leave the bill in the hands of Mr Jon.n Walker that I should happen to be out of the way my self, & so save you the trouble of coming up Street
