Thomas Key Esq

D[ea]r Sir

      During Mr Johnsons absence at the Mines this day, your endorsement on John Dobins Draft & Joseph Lee’s accep[yance] has been returned for non payment. It was brought to me and I again returned it to Mr SK Batson observing that he has been many times requested to provide for such things at Glyns in case any of your endorsements should not be paid.  He says Glyns refuse to do anything except through the regular channel, that is, returning them to Berwick. He however advises that you should in the first instance make them payable at your own Bankers if needful. I told him I thought you kept an a/c at Glyns & he is to transmit your Bill by this Post.

			I am sir GB 

Bill  29 16

Costs  1  3 11

     £30 19 11
