To Mr Henry Airey						Farnacres 10th February 1772

Dear Brother

      I have ordered the Bullion to be delivered at your House instead of Mrs Marleys in Gateshead and as it is a valuable commodity I beg you'll be so obliged to you for informing me thereof by Letter directed to me at Farnacres near Gateshead and put into the Newcastle Post Office. Youll be so good as excuse the Liberty I have taken with you on this Occasion as the bringing the Bullion over to Gateshead is not only troublesome but attended with an additional Expence on acct of the Ferrying over the Water. I am Dear Brother

      Sincerely Yours

      N W Junr
