TranscriptTo Bell & Sword, Philadelphia 25 October 1756

Gentlemen:

We are favoured with yours of the 20th Instant. When you send any
money here, Jersey money or port Peices- are the most favourable. But
pray dont bury yourselves, for we are not at present in want of Money.
We shall make the most of whatever goods your Friends in Maryland
shall send us, but if they shoud want the proceeds remitted in goods from
this, we cant think of doing it without a Commission. But we never
proposed to Charge them more on the sales of the wheat then 5 per Cent.
We hope to give them such Content in the tryal they make here as to Induce
their doing very largely.
We are told Captain Scotts3 ship is to [be] fitted out there for a
Privateer. If it lyes in your way to Mention us to her owners, we shall be
obliged to you. G&C
