Wmsburg August 6th 1768.

Sir,

There is a small Accot. on the late Mr Royle's Books
now open against you, which I should be glad was settled.
I have applied to Mr Ed Cary several times, and he always
put me off, by saying Mr Royle had not settled with you
for the Fire Engine, if I am not mistaken, that was settled
for sometime before you left Virginia. enclosed is one of
our latest News Papers. Your Answer will greatly oblige,

Sir,
Your most humble Servt.
John Dixon

To John Norton Esqr.
