Mr Robinson,

I perceive by yr letter of the 29th that you have sent down the Harness to Mr Speight, & that the Carriage cost you 20s. You should have directed them onely for Mr Speight & let him have paid them & not name my name & then he would have paid no more than ten shillings of great heavy harness for himselfe. I have not yet seen them tho’ I doubt not but they will please me provided the price be Easy and then you may expect much more of my moneys. However shall be willing to Refer the price to Mr Speight himselfe. Send me down a note of what I’m indebted to you & shall send you a bill for the money. I am yr assured friend

Mr Wm Robinson Coach maker in Cow Lane nigh Smithfield London
