To Mr John Holmes.                                Farnacres 12th February 1773

Dear Sir

       Last Saturday I sent you a Box containing in one piece 651 Ounces of Bullion.   I am sorry it was not cut into pieces, the reason it was not is, that we expected to Sell it in Newcastle.  I doubt not you will find it a very clean piece notwithstanding it being soiled by keeping for I never saw a more beautiful piece in my life when it came from the Refinery.

       I am etc    N W Junr
