Mr John Holmes.                              		Farnacres 2nd July 1773

Dear Sir

       By this Weeks Carrier who will set out for London on Saturday first (tomorrow) we shall send you a Box of Bullion containing 858 1/2 Ounces.

       We are sorry to find that Markett for Silver is so bad and doubt it will stil be  lower.  Whatever the price may be with you we would be glad you should never give us more than you can afford as the Markett may happen upon the arrival of each parcel of Bullion you will therefore fix the prices accordingly and as we may at some times perceive an opportunity of getting a better price of others than your Markett will afford in such case we hope you will not take it amiss if we should sell to others; we believe, however, that this will very seldom happen.  We are with best respects to yourself Mrs Holmes and Family

       Dr Sir Your most hble Servts
