Dear Joseph
I now at length take a moment
to write a line or two to you in reply to your
last which came to hand in due time I had
[-------?] to write by every mail since but some
thing ocurred to prevent me till it was too late
If this reaches you there is a note enclosed from
John MaCowan which will set you right respecting
Cairn's Bill and the œ60:15:0 which I have paid
him for you I gave it without reference to
any thing connected with the Bill or [Ledwiches?]
account whatever I did so because I was displeased
by Mr M making a Demand which I
thought he should not have done and if
I had funds at the time I would have
paid him out, and I am quite sure
you will think it strange when I tell
you that he has asked me for the
ballance two three times since and has
plainly stated that he did not make the
arrangement with you that you speak
