      Here is a copy of a Letter rec’d this day from Mr Ramage.  I request that you will receive a Bill from Messrs John Taylor & Sons at three months date payable in London for  the full amount of the Debt to be conformable to the decision of my Lord Armadale, provided you are of opinion no risque is incurred by so doing, detrimental to Colonel Beaumont’s interest, having prosecuted this business to a successful issue so far, it is my wish to have it finally settled and to your knowledge and direction I recommend its completion.  Mr Walters is, & has been some time, in London which is the reason (I suppose) that my first hearing of this late decision in our favor, is from Mr Ramage

      I am etc MM
