To Mr John Holmes					Farnacres 25th April 1774

Dear Sir

	By the London carrier who set out from Newcastle on Saturday I sent you a Box containing 981 ounces of fine silver.

      On the 13th instant I sent you a Newcastle Salmon which I hope arrived safe and proved good. It was a day later than I had intended on account of my not being able to get one the day I had fixed upon.

      This day I write to brother Smeaton who is I suppose at Austhorpe or upon the Road between London and there.

      All here join me in best respects and I am Dear Sir

      Your most hble servt

      	NW Junr
