Sir,

Being wholly dependant on my
Collections (as I think I wrote you before) I cannot
pretend to say that I will certainly take up
my note the 1st July altho I should be very glad to do so. It had better be sent near
[illegible] as I do [illegible] you I will pay it as early
as I possibly can.

I find on the Books of my [illigible] Allen
Jones, a charge against your House for 4 Hogsheads
of Tobacco shipped in 1774 & yet unaccounted
for. I afurther charge for a money received by
the House, on the account of Mr’s Dunlop & Wilson

Pray favour me with the amount of sales thus
current (for there is no credit on the Books [illegible]
[illegible] sum on account of William Wills) that I may
know how the matter really stands — I should
suppose, as no importations were allow’d after
the shipping of this Tobacco for the only orders appear
on the Books having been protested by your
Father in the War, that the whole proceeds of
the Tobacco must be due the Estate[illegible]
my note may with propriety be settled after
that debt. I will be glad to hear from
you on the subject I am

Sir Your obedient humble Servant
