Dear Madam

Humphreys has been instructed to proceed a second time to Gibraltar and to settle the affairs of Mr. Barclay with the public, and as it is not probable he had any others there than with the public, this settlement will go to the whole. I think you may be assured that Colo. Humphreys will render you every service in his power, and1 recommendations to him to that effect shall certainly not be wanting. Colo. Humphreys is in habits of connection with the Bulkeleys, the correspondents of Mr. J. Barclay, which will facilitate the delivery to him of Mr. Barclay’s private effects. In this and every other particular in which I can render you any service, I shall do it with the utmost pleasure and zeal, being with sentiments of most sincere esteem Dear Madam Your most obedt. & most humble servt
