The 9th Ultimo Capt Robert Gibb handed me your favour dated December 19th 1771 covering Invoice & Bill Lading for Sundrys which were landed in good order agreeable thereto.

Expecting that Capt Codwise would ⟨have⟩ saild two days ago, I had already wrote & delive⟨red⟩ my Letter to him, but the arrival of Capt Lowndes furnishes me with something more to say.

I have now the pleasure to acquaint you with the arrival of your new Sloop Thunderbolt commanded by Capt William Newton, a fine Vessell indeed, but I fear, not so swift as she ought to be.

This goes by way of St Thomas and I must beg youll peruse the inclosed...

Thus you...
