To Mr Wm. Airey Darwin Grays inn London                              Newcastle 16th January 1761

Sir   Inclosed is Thos Aireys bill on Nixon & Horne for £284.8s.6d, wch you will please to advise the receipt of. This is my own money & I am desirous of having it laid out in purchasing £300 stock in the four p[er] Cent Annuities 1760 as I think the placing it upon that security will, after a peace, be advantageous. But I am sorry I cannot obtain the chance of that advantage without being troublesome to you. I am told the best way is to have it bought in my own name & to have the cashier’s rec[eip]t sent me: & as to the int[e]r[es]t, if you can procure me the form of such an authority as is usual in such cases, for yourself, or if that is inconvenient, any p[er]son you shall recommend to receive it for me I shall sign it & return it. My father has placed this bill to your accot.& will give you credit on sending me the cashier’s receipt & the Brokers charge  I am etc   HR
