To Lancelot Allgood Esqr.                         Newcastle 7th May 1731


I have this morning been with Ald[erma]n Ridley about the £200 bill, who desires you will not return it, & promises if his <Bro[the]r> pay it not in two posts after your Receipt hereof, he will send up money by the Carrier to discharge it, please therefore to send it once more for payment & let me know what <answr> is given, this usage must surely be thought so trifeling, as will excuse my being cautious in dealing with them. Trade continues so very dull, that I have not since my last been able to get sixpence either in money or bill, please to let me know what further remittance you will want, Mr Bernardeau is now shipping some Lead & I expect his bills in two or three posts but if they won’t do for you, shall send you what further sum you direct by the carrier, for I can meet with no good bills under one p[er] cent[iu]m. I hope Mad[a]m Allgood is now out of danger, & that wee shall see you shortly in the Country, whither I heartily wish you a good journey & am    JR
