To Mr Holmes. Farnacres 12th May 1775 Dear Sir By last Saturdays London Carrier we sent you a Box containing 769 1/2 Ounces of Fine Silver which doubt not you will receive on Saturday Sennt. We are much obliged to you for your services respecting the Bellows as well as the Holly etc. We have wrote to Mr Maylin in further explanation of some matters in which he seemed likely to be the better for further information. We are getting the Holly overhauled, and as it will answer no end to send it for the Button mould makers at 1d P foot, we propose to cut out what seems any ways defective sending every thing above 10 Inches long and above 4 Inches Diamr and every piece will be marked with the solid content and numbered, but nothing to be sent of so small a size as 4 Inches Diamr unless it be clean and [underlined: ‘well coloured’]. We propose to send it all in the round; we measure it by girting it, the same as Oak or Elm: if by [underlined: ‘square measure’] you mean any other method of measuring, we should be glad to know. We are further obliged to you for sending us the Tweed Fishery Bill, and have the satisfaction to find, as we expected, that there is nothing in it that will affect the Hospital's Estate or Interest. We are Sir Your most hble Servts N W Junr J S Mr Smeaton desires his Compliments to Mr Masterman : and begs to acquaint you, that he expects to get home to Austhorpe on Tuesday next and at present proposes to set out for London by the Fly on Saturday the 27th.
