       On the 23rd July last I wrote you desiring to have One hundred  Casks of Bone Ashes the first opportunity.  I now am to acquaint you that there is likely to be a great disappointment to our Undertaking by your being so long in letting us have the above Quantity and I must beg the Favour of you to let me know by Return of the Post whether you can serve us or not as in case you cannot we must look elsewhere, at the same time I assure you we do not wish to change as we admit having been well served 'til the Delay since July. Mr John Salter being dead you will in case of your Shipping the Ashes for us write to Messrs Walton & Turner & you shall be paid immediately.     I am for Mr Turner & Self 

       Sir Your etc
