Dear Sirs

Please to be refered to what I wrote you the 27th. Ulto, on considering the possibility of your not obtaining £6,500 Sterl. for my Estate the Sum by which you were then limited, and as I would not have my purpose mared by failing of the above sum, and in Case you cannot obtain an intermediate Sum I even consent to take Six Thousand pounds Sterl. which I have no doubt you will obtain, and for which this is your Authority. I am with high Regard, but great haste, which I hope you’ll excuse Dear Sir Your most obedient and obliged humble Servant

Charles Pearce Esqr
