Mr Bell

      I have got Tickets for 36 pieces of Lead delivered by Mr William Bell of the Highshield and desire you will pay him £1.8.6 for them in part of the £1.14.1/2 left in your hand for him; you will then have £-.5.6 1/2 left to be pd him when he delivers you a Tickett for Seven Pieces.  I wd have you keep that Ticket & Davisons til we see you.  

      I am Your hble Servt

      N W Junr 

PS Upon considering further I think you had best send us the Ticketts as soon as you get them.  Davison's I understand are going by Corbett, so you will probably have got them by this time.
