Mr Jno Holmes.                          					Farnacres 25th Octor 1780


       We have reced yours of the 21st  and have this day drawn upon you for £219:8:5 being the Amount of 755 Ounces of Fine Silver at 5s/9 3/4d P Ounce.  We were from Home when the above Silver was sent which prevented our giving you advice of it.

       We inclose you a Letter from Mr Probert who we have desired to call upon you immediately for his Money and indeed we are sorry  he has not already done so as it has occasioned our being obliged to take it out of your Cash Acct in which we had entered it as a payment upon the clear supposition of his being ready to wait upon you for the Money.

       We are Sir Yours etc 

       W & T

£219:8:5.                                Farnacres 27th Octor 1780

Thirty days after Date pay to the Order of Messrs Bell, Carr, Cookson,  Widdrington & Saint Two Hundred and Nineteen Pounds Eight Shillings and five pence.   Value received as advised by Walton & Turner 

Mr Holmes London
