      I wrote to you from Harrogate the 5th Inst to which I beg leave to refer you.  Inclosed I send you a bill for £84-15-6 which sum with £15-4-6 over remitted the 23 Feby last will be in full for one half years interest of the £4000 remaining on the Bond & Mortgage on the late Sir T Blackett to the late Mr W Wilson; the receipt of which you will please to acknowledge.

	Col Beaumont enclosed me your Lre of the 3d Inst which he desired me to answer.  Col Beaumont cannot with any tolerable convenience pay Twelve Hundred Pounds immediately in part of the £4000 but on account of its being of service to the young Gentn a Bill will be remitted to you for that sum in the course of this Month, or the beginning of the next; which I hope may answer his purpose;  You will please to observe that Sir Thomas Blackett took the Sum of £5000 of Mr W Wilson & continued it at 5 per Cent by way of doing him a service at a time when that sum could have been procured on a Mortgage at 4 per Cent.                        I am respectfully Yours etc   J.E.B
