You will be please to Recolect an Execution which you had In the 1769 again Mr: John Rogers In favour of Captn Hopkins on Account of a Note of Hand Given Him by Mr. Rogers Which to prevent The Case’s going into Law I with Mr. Rogers Sighned a Note Jointley & Severally to be pay’d in three Months Which When it Became due Rogers did not pay as He promise Me. You Informing Me that you had Orders to Sue Me for the Note. I desire you to wait till I Could See Mr: Rogers to Get Security Which I did Then their Being Two Wiggs that I Made for you One a Tic Wigg the Other a Bob Wigg that Was not Settled for I desire you to please to Satisfy the matter with Mr. Hopkins & Charge it to me you was Kind Enough to tell me you Would Shortly after you Calling on me to Settle But Not having the Note with You I Supposed it to Be with the Writ Wee Settled & I thought Mr. Hopkins Satisfyed I think there must Be Some Neglect In Settleing With Him as I Lived In Boston Four Years after & Never Hear any more of the Matter till about Two years Past When Mr. Hopkins Calld on Me to Settle’d it I was Very much Surprised & Inform’d Him In What Manner it has Been Settle’d Agreable to What I Write you But He says He never Was Satisifyed. You Are a Gentleman that must think It very Hard For me to be Obliged to pay it again I Should Be Extremly Obliged to you to try all in your power to Recolect as much of the Matter as to Satisfy Mr Hopkins That it has been Settled—
