Gentn.      I wrote to you the 20th Inst. to which I beg leave to refer you;  I have now the favour of your letter of the 19th Inst advising of your payment to Sir Henry Wilson’s Bankers Mess. Snow & Co. £2870  on Account of Thomas Rd. Beaumont Esq.& enclosing Mess. Snow & Co’s receipt for that Sum.  I am glad that Sir Henry Wilson has at length thought proper to receive this money, without insisting on a few days interest owing to some delay in him on Account of his late Marriage.

   I observe that the Bond & the Mortgage Deed will be forwarded by the Mail Coach .
