Mr Peter Bar                                          			8ber : 31 :   1679


Yrs of the 14 I recd. last post, where it has been soe long I cannot imagine, if had come sooner to hand should have sooner been answered   I shall hereby doe itt I hope to <content I wondr> att Mr <Rigaults> first question  I hope he keepes coppies of his letters  whereby he will find that he himself gave me order to freight Mr <Glasman> with a much greater Sum, soe that the money was paid upon his accot and noe otherwise and <Glasman> is a Rogue to tell me that I paid him sd mony upon that Shipps accot. he knows very well that £13  of itt was pd to his fitter.  Truly should be a fool to lend a man mony that I know nott, without either consideration or to own that I never was a penny better by, as to yr Second question I will tell you the real truth, nott only Mr Rigault, butt also Mr Nephew & the Mar. was very earnest with me, for the promising of some butter I could get none here at the limited price, and being desirous to serve him especially he being a young man, and thinking if I gott any, it would turne to his advantage, I furnished 4 Countrymen with £25 a piece and desired them if any butter about there dwellings they would buy itt and send it me in, and being confident I should have gott some, did draw to pleasure a friend £35: upon him butt I see what I am like to get for my kindnesse Intended, what losse he sustained thereupon  I am willing to allow rather than to have any words about itt  I  <wonder> I have nothing of the £20:  I am satisfied Mr Hays drew long before he paid
