When Mr Smeaton was in London he purchased a pair of Spectacles for a Friend of ours which cost, I believe, 5s - & if you will be so good as let me know what my Watch is to be for cleaning I will allow for that and the Spectacles when I draw for the above Silver.

Nich Walton Junr. PS Having sent a parcel of Mustard for our Greenwich Friends we have desired Mr Maule to order Six Bottles to you which you will oblige us by accepting.
