My Dear Sir,

With reference to the Charge proposed to be made in Mr Beaumonts acc[oun]t under the circumstances you name. I cannot object to allow the £2 per cent upon it more really we could not allow unless for the movements in London, we were to make a charge upon them to indemnify us the expenses.		I am my Dear Sir  Your very Truly

							J Longhorn

You will receive herewith a ret[urne]d Bill which with similar ones, were desired, when dishonered to be applied for to the Other Parties By Glyns in London. This I believe Glyns would not do – they will not depart from their usual regularity & in fact as such a proceeding might lead to irregularities and get us all into scrapes it would be better not but you might at any time when you have given notice to Mr Johnson, Enclose them to Messrs Glyn & Co directing them to whom & whence to apply. You can explain this to Mr Johnson but the best way would be for him to get Mr Key to give a reference on the back of the bill to his Bankers      
Letter is not addressed to anyone but is assumed to be a reply to George Backhouse letter to Thomas Key of 14 Jan 1834 above .
