I have this day, drawn upon Messrs C. & R. Puller in Broadstreet Buildings, for Three hundred Pounds, in favour of Mr John Osborne, Supposing that they have recd that Sum for me, of Sir Clement Cotterel Dormer. But, if I Should be mistaken in this Supposition, and the Bill<
s> Should be presented to you, I pray you, to accept and pay it out of my Money in your hands.
With great Regard &c
