I have therefore herein returned you it, & hope you will have no other trouble with it than sending for the Money again. He allso writes me he has taken care that his other Draughts will be payd punctually. Mr Boag is from home, but is I dare say much at your service & you may be assured I am the same to you & yours, & beg to be Esteemed.
