Dear Sir

      By this Weeks London Carrier we send you a Cake of Bullion weight 474 Ounces which we hope you will receive Safe on Saturday the 5th of May.

      We should be glad to know whether you look upon it that the Silver, as soon as delivered to the Carrier, is at your risk or the Commissioners of Greenwich Hospital.

      Mr Smeaton proposes setting out for Austhorpe tomorrow. We are Dear Sir

      Your most Hble Servt

             		Nich. Walton Junr

PS. The Carrier being gone earlier than Common you will by that means receive the Silver a week later.
