Letterbook copy: American Philosophical Society

Philada: Augt. 21. 1759


In case of Miscarriages, I have sent You the third Copy of a Bill of Exchange for £200 Sterling the first Copy of which I sent You by the William and Mary Capt. Nicholson5 and the Second by the Chippenham, Capt. Spain who had the Misfortune to spring a Leak at sea,6 which will cause some Delay in her. But I am told she will sail again in ten days at farthest.

I am glad the Affair of the Bill thought to be lost, is Clear’d up7 and am Sir Your humble Servant:

D. Hall
