Dear Sir, 

Mr. Makepeace has finished all our Plate, he mentiond being now in our Debt by the Past Test of Silver being more than due to him, and as money will be very acceptable I should imagine to our concerns you will probably be so good as settle with Mr. Makepeace what credit do you give to the Refiners who purchase yr tests of silver?  They say silver is much raised in price lately.  I write in the greatest haste.

      I remain Dear Sir Very sincerely yours,D. Beaumont
