I perceive by my father, that 2 of your Brothers Bills upon mee for 273.6.1 being protested, you have for honour of your said Bro. dischardged the same, wch has not a little troubled me, the reale reason of this neglect was, that the March[an]d who presented mee them did tell me that the mony would be demanded here, wch I made provision for accordingly and In same nature I am very fearfull Mr James Burkin will protest another bill for £275.  Though formerly and the past I have remitted him the whole what is past is not to be Rimydied, I desire you will please to take noe further notice of itt, and if ever I be blamed againe for another of such a nature I will forfeit my head - Inclosed is a bill for what you have paid. and lett me know the Chardges, and what you desire for the favour you have done me, and itt shall be immediately be ordered you by   MB
