To Mr Denton


      Inclos’d is a Bill on Messrs Cook & Abell for the sum of forty five pounds (which is the Ball. due to you as per acco[un]t within) which bill I desire you will own the receipt of, & that it is in full.

      My last would acquaint you that Mr. Clarke assured me the Boundary Bill was sent away & that he did not receivable subpeena in time to get it served. I wish Mr Blackett may succeed in raising the money at 3 ½ P.r Cent but I doubt it much, pray give a hint w[ha]t success you think the Causes between Mr Blackett <& the Trustees will have & what>  Mr Fenwicks opinion is therein I am &cc        JR
