To Webster & Son
[July 15th 1772]
The Inclos’d new Watch Key, is one of the 3 wch were sent me last year by Webster & Son in consequence of my desiring them to be very neat1—the other two are exactly like it, & chargd at 1/6 each, when I could have bought as many as I pleasd in the Shops here (rather neater) at 6d. or 7½ a piece this Cy. I again wish to have two very different from this Common sort—to be of the size of the old one, & one of them to work like it, the other as the new one; but both to be of the best kind, & much handsomer and neater than either.2
ALB, DLC:GW. This memorandum was written at the end of GW’s invoice to Cary of this date.
