Dr Sir!	I am favoured with your letters of the 6th & 7th inst & observe the Contents I hope that the Bank may soon put their smaller Notes in circulation, that things may come about, & that Credit & Confidence may soon be restored; the Banks of this place have begun to issue Twenty shilling Notes & I have great hopes that we may be enabled to make the Lead Pay in May next.  I have had letters from the Lead Stewards & am glad to find that the postponing the lending has not been attended with any great inconvenience or Clamour.

                                                                                                   I am etc   J.E.B
