								Shawdon 21st. Septr. 1804

Dear Sir

      After giving six months notice I am to be paid £ 10,000, therefore I shall be entitled to receive that Sum in May next; but lest by any unexpected event I should be prevented from receiving the Money in due time, I would not engage to pay it before Martinmas following; though I should wish to pay the money to Mrs.Stead as soon as I may receive it. For the same reason, I would not engage to pay an additional £ 5000 before Martinmas 1806, and the remaining £ 5000 at Martinmas 1807 I am with much Respect Dear Sir

      Your most Obedt. Servt. 

      Wm. Hargrave
