I have seen the Collector of the watch Rate, <1> & paid him for one quarter only to Midsummer last – & desired him to apply to me for any demands he may have against you in future. – These incessant applications are certainly very annoying, & I will therefore if you wish it relieve you from them hereafter.

I remain
Your most Obedt
& very Humble Servt
