	I had the favour of yrs of the 22nd and am mightily obligd to you for yr Endeavours in Procuing the money which I have occasion for upon my younger sons acct. My Lady Hewley has promised to furnish me with £1000 att May day at 5 p cent so tis onely £500 more that my business requires and I believe there is no very great hast of that sum provided I can get 1000 speedily Returnd from York or Leeds, wch I have some Reason to doubt by this time of the year so shall be forced to send it up by the Carrier from Yorke

	If you think I may depend upon £1500 the first of June I am sure it will answer my business. Am not obligd by the articles to pay the money till the 24 but my Son writes me theres a great sale of Spice and fruit the 26 of May, and if they have a consid.able Sum by then they shall gain at least £50 by it, and if they miss that Sale what species and fruit they buy afterward will cost them £2 p cent more so I would not by any means have them disappointed. Pray give a line to Sr your most Obligd humble servt
