May it please your Ladyshipe. 			Capheaton 7ber 16: 1722. 

I haue Receiued your letter of this Same dayes date foraigne Style, and obserues what your Ladyshipe writes me, that there is as mr. Radburne writes your Ladyshipe, in mr. ffenwick and waters hands of the money I paid them a 1131£ : 03s. : 04 ½ d. which I much admire att, for they promised me before this time they would Returne it all to mr. Radburne. I shall write them to Return him 350£ with all speed as your Ladyshipe orders, and to 

Returne the Remainder as Soon as poseable, I am very much Surprised that mr.

Returnd comes but to 41£ being 8200£ at 10s. pr hundred, comes but to 41£, but I thinke it must be some mistake that the 78£ 2s. : 6d. paid mr. Wright, must be vpon Some other account, for I cann assure your Ladyshipe I was Resolued to pay them nothing for aduance of theire bills sent to mr. Radburne, Except your Ladyshipe had orderd it, I obserue what your Ladyshipe writes Concerning my accounts, I am sorry I cannot please your Ladyshipe and mr.
