July was duly answer'd, but suppose miscarried in which I let you know
Mess'rs Harts had clos'd with your proposal, your not replying occasion'd mine

21st, as also the £6.9/ Sterling you inclos'd in yt of 25th & 9 dollars rec'd this
day both & Mr Alexander have creditted you for in my Books, & if the
whole Sum for the discharge of Mess'rs Harts Bond is paid it will be indors'd
thereon & the Bond sent you, but otherwise will remain for your use & the
Bond will be return'd to them & the money with the Fish to you, as I
would not receive any gratuity untill they are satisfyed, altho' I acknow-
ledge myself oblig'd to you for the same. I am sensible your best endea-
vours are not wanting to fullfill your promise to them, shall agreeable
to your repeated declarations expect a speedy & full compliance therewith
& the sooner for you the better, as they may see Cause to Counterman'd their
orders relative thereto, you having neglected payment so long, I am
Yo'r most hum'l serv't

to send my rec't therewith as the whole Sum for the dis-
charge of the Bond will be indors'd thereon
