      We recd. Yours of the 23d June last & also that of the 7 July for both which we beg a <tender> of our hearty thanks. We were very heartily concerned for Poor Mr Mauls Accusation, but we do not question his being Acquitted with Honr, he is in our Oppinion a very honest man, and it is hard he should be Accused for an Act of Inadvertancy; which it must have been if he has done any thing amiss. Pray let us know how the Affair Ended as it will give us great pleasure to hear he was Acquitted with Hon[ou]r.

      Of late we have not realy had it in our power to get bills as you will Observe by the balance in our hands otherwise the Int[erest] due to the Heirs of Dr Chamberlaain wou’d have been Sooner paid.We have this day remitted it to them, as we have done the annuity of Lady Kath Radcliff both due at last Lady day, & for the Intimation you have given us we beg leave to return you our hearty thanks; & with our Comp[limen]ts to your family & to all friends at Greenwich &c we are Dr Sr

      Yours &c  Walton & Boag
