To Mr Jno Holmes                                           			Farnacres 24 April 1781 

Dear Sir

       By Saturdays Carrier we sent you a Box containing 502 Ounces of Bullion.

       You will be so obliging as dispose of the inclosed Tickett 20515 which we believe to be a £20- - Prize and be so good as purchase and send down when you next write two Ticketts in the present State Lottery and as the Covers for Mr Walton Junr Franked by Mr Bowes are upon very tender paper You'll be kind enough to inclose the Ticketts in other Paper Sealed up and directed so that in case the Frank shd give way the Letter may after all come safe.

       We are Yours etc

       N W Junr  J C T
