To Mr Holmes. Farnacres 18 June 1775 Dear Sir Yesterday I sent a Box to the London Carrier cont 684 3/4 ounces of Silver which I hope you will receive safe on Saturday Sennt. Silver having been sold lower than the rate set down in Castaignes Paper when you receive the last Cake you paid abt one halfpenny or better P Ounce for that Cake more than you ought to have done and as Silver has continued at a lower rate than that at which you purchased the last Cake I think it reasonable that you should be allowed One half penny an Ounce on the present Cake in lieu of the difference and desire you will charge it accordingly that is whatever Standard is when it arrives you will reckon 4 1/2 P Ounce more instead of 5d P Ounce. I have reced Mr Smeatons Letter as also the Boards Minutes the latter of which only arrived the Evening before his Letter and I desire you will be so good as let my Brother know he shall hear from me as soon as I return from the Lead Mill where I am going this day and propose returning about Friday next. I am etc N W Junr PS You will see by Loyd's List Restoration Capt Pinkney arrives but I flatter myself you have before this got the Holly.
