To Mr John Skinner.

We are concerned for the Death of Mr Finch and wish you Success in the undertaking and we desire to add 50 Casks more to the Order which we beg may be compleated by you with all convenient Dispatch. We have desired Mr John Holmes to be so obliging as pay for the 50 Casks of Ashes got of Mr Finch which he will do as soon as he is properly made acquainted with the necessary circumstances to enable him to judge who is intitled to receive the same you will therefore take care to have the representative of Mr Finch to wait upon Mr Holmes who is a Watch Maker in the Strand and give him the Needful Information and the Money will be paid directly: and Mr Holmes will pay you for all such Ashes as you may deliver hereafter or otherwise we will get some other person in London to do that to your satisfaction. We are Sir. Yours etc W & T PS Be pleased to direct to us at Farnacres near Gateshead.
