To Mr Holmes.                             					Farnacres 3rd October 1775

Dear Sir

       I am this day favoured with your Letter of the 30th Ulto and have drawn upon you for £244.18 being the amount of 848 3/4 Ounces of Fine Silver at 5s 9 3/4d P Ounce.  With regard to the Holly I must beg you will make a charge for the trouble you have had on account of it as the Commissioners of Greenwich Hospital should certainly pay that and after I hear from you on this head and when the next Cake of Bullion is drawn for, that matter may be settled but indeed it seems unreasonable that we should draw for it, til you have received the Money for it.

       The Bill is payable Thirty Days after Date and you will receive a Cake of Bullion by the Carrier who sets out from Newcastle for London on Saturday the 14th inst.  I am joined by all here in best Compliments to you and yours and am for Bro & Self.

               Dear Sir etc

       N W Junr
