Sir/

I forward the list of the plates I have of yours & the invoice for the same together with Miss Fieldings [sic] & the Late Lady Elizabeths [sic]. if you could let me have the amount of them with your Cheque, I should feel very much obliged, for money is very difficult to procure, & they have been standing so long. If any convenience to you I will keep them, here, but I Move shortly after Xmas so I thought that you would have them sent to Mr Henneman. All these plates are mounted so that I have paid for the boards long since

I am Sir Yours Obedy
