To Mr Mark Harvey at Sr.Wr Blacketts

in Pall Mall London

Sr.     The Laudau arrived about a week ago, & today the Coach maker uncased her in order to hang & clean her; when tho’ the case was not the least damaged, yet he found one of the Glasses broke & the panel of the door split, without any marks of violence on the varnish, further than what was owing to the crack. This accident has manifestly happened f[ro]m the carelessness of the packer, who had put the two steps & a large screw driver loose in the inside of the Landau.

Gamble is pressing for payment of 18 kitts of Salmon, wch he says was sent to London in April & May last by your order, I desire to know whether so many were got for Sir Walter. I am etc   HR
