Dear Sir

      I have this day reced. your letter of the 6th inst and am much surprized to find the Quantity of Bullion to vary from the Weight I gave you an Account of, I Weighed the Bullion myself at Newcastle which agreed with the Weight as sent me an Account of by the Mill Agent within half an Ounce so I am doubtfull you may have made some Error in the Weighing and I shall not therefore draw upon you for this Cake ‘til I hear again from you acknowledging the Recet. Of a Cake now on the Road weight 980 Ounces at which time desire you’ll let me know whether I am to draw for 571 ½ Ounces or 574 ¼ - I am much obliged to you for paying the Money for the Quickes’s and shall allow that and for my Watch the first time I draw upon you & am wth best respects

      Dear Sir Yours &c
