I wrote you 10th March by the Dispatch, Captain Samuel Livingston
for Belfast, and enclosed Sales of Two Hundred & Ninety five firkens
of Butter received by the William & George proceeds £532.16.4 &
thought that was all I received from Captain Dunbar,which I now find
was A Mistake, occasioned by my Books being some time unposted when
I furnished the Sales Which I hope you & he will excuse. The Sales of
the other you have above. Proceeds £9.11.0 is to your credit.
Inclosed you have Thomas Elringtons bill of the 3rd Ultimo on John
Calcraft, Esquire, at 30 days sight for £50 Sterling Exchange, 821/2: per
Cent, £91.10.0 to your debit. I cant get a small Bill or would send the
balance of your account, but shall as soon as in my power.
I cant advise you to any Article from Ireland that has A Better Prospect
