Above you have a Copy of the Letter which you mention has lossed it's way to the Mill - for the future I shall be glad to find Mr Laybourne and Mr Bells Messengers are more punctual, and I must beg you will find out the Persons Name to whom this Letter was delivered for tho the present one was not of consequence to make any bustle about, yet it may be proper for us to know who neglects upon such an Occasion, that we may give directions for their not being trusted again.

      I shall consult Mr Smeaton upon the Subject of your last Letter, after which you shall hear from me, in the mean time it will certainly be right to go on as usual.
