To Mr Maule


      We have the favour of yours of the 29 July last Inclosing our two Quarters Ending the 30 June 1739 & the 3d June 1740 for wch we beg a return of our most hearty thanks & Inclosed herin we send you a bill on Mr Skutt for the £49.12.1 ½ you have been so kind as Pay the Auditers to whome pray at your first opportunity present our Complimts for the Dispatch he has been so kind as give to the accot.

	We have made up our Accot. & had it finished before your Letter came to hand to the 30th Apr 1741 both as to Rents & {Receivings] payments but we find that it were attended with an inconvenience which we did not before foresee so that we are making it over again to End at the 30 Apr 1741 as to the Rents Issues and profitts but the Receivings & payments we bring forward as usual to the 30 June. There is two or three things which make it appear to us Nesessary to have it end at those times. First as to the Rents Issues & Profitts ending 30 Apr 1741 we shall by that means in future have to doe only with one Rentall & as to the Rec[eivings] & payments being brought on to the 30 of June 1741 it is proper on Accot. of our Contingent Accot. which ends then & to which we refer as voucher. And besides as the 30 Apr is so near our Great rec[eip]t of the Rents we have not time to make remittances so that it would never appear at settleing on accot. that we had less then £1800 or £2000 in our hands. And  the Auditors Fees would also be [altere] as in the last accot. they are paid up to the 30 of June.

	These Considerations have Induced us to make out the Accot. as above, which we will ready to send as soon as you present our Contingt. Accot. to the Board & we hope the Method it is in will be Satisfactory to Mr Hunter Yourself & the Rest of Gents. Concernd in it & wth Complmts to your <fireside> & to all our good friend at Greenwich & Broad Street 

      Dr Sir Yours &c

      Walton & Boag
