Dear Sir

      I wrote to you the 12th inst. to which I beg leave to refer you; I am since favour’d with your letter of the 13th inst. & observe that the Bishop wishes to have the Composition settled from the 18th January to Pentecost & then it will go on regularly in the quarter days: I have made a calculation of the sum for 137 days which I believe will be £319.0.9 ¾ if you agree with me in it on your advising me I will remit you a bill at ten days date for the same. I paid Mr. C Johnson the Moor Master Rent due to the late Bishop to the 14th July last. I am with respect

      Dear Sir Your most obedt. Servt

      John E. Blackett
