D[ea]r Sr.

Inclos’d is Mr Matt Bell’s Bill on Mr Sam[ue]l Ashburys for forty pounds, which [missing word] you must Credit Mr Allgood for, it being sent you at his desire, & on his acco[un]t, I <cannot> procure a bill at a shorter date, & as Mr Bell could not draw till the 4th inst[ant], I desire you forbear one post before you present this bill, Mr Ward says you have advised him [missing word] draught payable to time & that he will pay it some time before Xmas. I cannot prevail upon him because of the Intended Alliance to Mr Dagnia who is a friend of M [rest of word missing]. On the otherside you have a copy of Mr Nicholls bill which you left with me, the six articles of which amounting to 7. 10. 0 has been paid, & till I know how & [missing word] the second Mortg[a]ge of £12000 was paid I can’t be certain but his whole dem<and> may have been accounted for by Sr. Wm. Blackett, I hope the Boundary Cause between Mr. Blackett & Mr Whitfield is in a fair way of being compromised by [missing word] it to an honest Gent[le]man here, I am  yours etc      JR
