This we think is all the Explanation we Can give of the Debt Side of the Accot. & as to the Credit Side thereof we have made out Pticular Accot. to Shew how each Totall is made up & bundled them with the Vouchers belonging thereto & have sent the whole by the Carrier to Col. Liddell & unto Mr Lovegrove who will deliver you them as soon as you require them.
