      Mr Allgood writes me that Mr Clark says the £200 bill on Cook d[ate]d the 26 November 1728, which I sent Mr Clark that same day to London, is part of the £900 I paid him in Newcastle the 31 October 1728, which I hope he’s now satisfyd, is a mistake, & that I do not charge him at all with that bill, if the matter is clea[red] up to his satisfaction pray return me the Bill to prevent any future mistake about it.
