Messrs Storr & Mortimer London					May 11th 1833

      I have duly recd your letter of the 6th inst advising the receipt of a Piece of Silver weight 1470 Oz. I cannot account for the loss of weight you mention as we always weigh the Silver at the Office before it is posted and are most particular in the weight. Our Bankers have not advised of any money paid by you to Mr Beaumonts credit this week, at which I am much surprised. This may have been an oversight of your banker as once occurred before and will thank you to pay £2006.16.1 now due to Mr Bts credit with Batson Berry & Co at Glyns & Co as usual.     BJ
