You observe that taxes are very high and ask how you shall pay them? Draw
upon me for one hundred pounds sterling, in your own Hand writing, and the Bill
shall be paid the Moment it is presented to me. Any Person who wants to remit
England, will be glad of the opportunity. Your
Uncle Smith will negoitiate the Business for you.
You may obtain silver, for your Bills of Gold, for one of these Metals shall be
paid here pr your Bills at Sight. I have written the same within two or three
days by another vessel.
