To Mr Newham Nicholson. 					Farnacres 20th September 1770

Mr Nicholson

      As we have not yet had any advice of the Box being reced at London which you last delivered to the London Carrier I desire you will make Enquiry when the London Waggon arrives whether they delivered the Box or not. As I suppose Matthew Lees Waggon will be at Newcastle this week you will probably be enabled to see Matthew Lee this Afternoon and I shall be obliged to you for sending me the most early intelligence after you have seen him. You have as follows a Copy of the Recet. which you took for the Carriage.

Reced. 24 th August 1770 of Messrs Walton & Smeaton Six Shillings for Carriage of a Box to Mr J Holmes Watchmaker in the Strand London containing Bullion

24 Lb at 3d - £   6[s].

Francis finley for Matthew Lee

      I am. Your most Hble Servt

      Nich Walton Junr
