Dear Sir

	Yesterday we sent by the London Carryer our Vouchers to our Derwentwater Accot to the 31 December last in a Small Box Directed for George Liddell esqr. The Carryers name is Fryer Todd & he will be at the White Horse without Cripplegate on Saturday the 1 of next Month – Tho this letter is directed for the Col[one]l it is intended to be opend by you & is Committed to your Care, & w[ha]t Expence Accrues upon it pray Charge upon us; It shall be thankfully repayd you, but we have further to desire you will Add to the severall bundles the Inclosed Accots as they are numberd, which will Compleat the whole Vouchers, and upon Mr Maul giving you notice, we desire you will Ask the Col[one]ls leave to go down to Greenwich to Call them over, & after they are so called we desire you’ll ask Mr Maul as from yourself a Rece[ip]t acknowledging to have rece[ive]d the severall vouchers for all the payments charged as made by us from 14 Nov 1736 to 31 Decem last. This we have not thought proper to name to Mr Maule  but thought it better to leave it to you to get done. The delivering up our Vouchers is a matter of great Consequence to us so that we doubt not but you will secure us by a proper Voucher. We hope you will putt it in our power to returne the favour we have from you and are  Dr Sr
