Being desirous of closing all accounts with Mrs Swarbrecks Valencia &c <1> to which you were kindly a Subscriber, & being about to leave this I take the liberty of writing you to request the favor of Your remitting me the amount of your Subscription by a Check upon a London Banker as the most convenient probably to each party. - The sum is so trivial that I should not have applied for it, but that I conclude this will reach you free of postage being in Parliament - & tho small in itself - with others it makes up the Sum adequate to cover the expenses of the work

I have the Honor to be Sir Your vy obedt Servt
