We are favoured with yours of the 6th & 8th November Yesterday &
observe the contents.
Your account shall have credit for the sundry sums you mention if
found free of Error, but dont be so exact in Insuring above the amounts
of the goods. Leave £100 to £150 Sterling uninsured on every Vessel you
ship for us in.

note them as made by you.

lake the liberty to write him & let you know his answer. We find he has
used you ill and shall tell him so.
We shall do (he utmost to execute your order for the wheat as soon
as the Rivers opens. We expect we shall be able to comply with it & shall
hold one half in what ever we ship & keep you duely advised of it.

Greg would fix what Market would be most prudent to order what
Cargoes we ship to. The Charter Party cant be so very extensive as you
mention, but shall certainly fix all the Vessels to touch at Belfast or
Derry for Your further orders. Wheat now sells at 4s/6d per Bushel of 58
pounds, but its expected lower.
