Mr Holmes.                                      Farnacres 1st October 1773

Dear Sir

       By this Weeks London Carrier so send you a Cake of Bullion weight 618 1/2 Ounces; it comes sooner than expected as we found it would make too large a Cake to let alone taking off one til the middle of this Month.

       When I wrote you last I had sold a small Cake of Bullion at Newcastle for 5s.9 1/2 POunce which I forgot to mention to you then.

               I am N W Junr
