I would have the Topps for the horses Scarlett, & very full, and as for the fashion of the bitts, for the bridles I leave them wholy to yr discretion, you may Send down a postillion Coat and Cape  with the Harness, I hope for yr own Credit you’ll make the harness & brass work as fashionable as any is Wore, & as Reasonable,   I may come to be a good Customer to you for I always keep both a Coach and Charriot, Acqt me with the Rect. of this Lettr as soon as it comes to yr hand by a line to yr Assr’d friend 

Mr Robinson   Coachmaker  etc
