To Mr John Holmes Farnacres 17th May 1771 Dear Sir This Weeks London Carrier brings you 433 1/4 Ounces of Bullion which will we hope arrive Safe on the 1st of June. Youll observe the Weight of the several pieces is marked on the back of each with Ink as we could not get a set of Stamp figures in Newcastle; if you find it answers in the way we shall continue to do it in the same manner but in case it does not youll be so good as furnish us with a set of figures and we shall from the Time we receive them Stamp the Weight on each piece of Bullion. If you should think it necessary to send a sett of figures they will come safe and readily to this place by leaving them with a Mr Salter in North Street near St Johns Church Westminster directed to us at Farnacres to the care of Mr Airey in Newcastle. We are with best respects to yourself Mrs Holmes and Family. Dear Sir your most Hble Servts Walton & Smeaton PS we shall be glad to hear the product of the last Cake in your next.
