Dear Sir

      We have considered the several conversations we have recently had with you on the Subject of Colonel Beaumont’s Lead Pay to be made the latter End of next Month: we feel we shall be much inconvenienced by the Shortness of the Time allowed us to prepare the Notes: but to shew our Disposition to serve Coln. Beaumont, we will undertake to make the Pay, on Condition that Sir R.C. Glyn & Co. agree to pay your Drats. at sight for the Amount.

      In Answer to your Application for the Loan of five Thousand Pounds, we will discount London Bills to that Amount, not exceeding three Month’s Date, which will lessen the Advancement to be made by Sir R.C. Glyn & Co. – 

      In Regard to any Remuneration to be made to us, we wish that to be postponed ‘till we have made the Pay & experienced the Effect, when we shall be better enabled to judge of it. – 

      This is nearly the Substance of the Plan we submitted to Messrs. Davison Noel & Co. in December last. – We shall be glad to have Sir R.C. Glyn & Co.’s Answer as soon as Convenient for our Government.

      We are Dr. Sir Your faithful Obedt. Servants

      Signed, 	 Baker & Co.

John E. Blackett Esq.
