Bayard, & Malcom his agent, & Moses Hunt-Joseph, on Whom the burthen fell, claims a payment of 25£ paid by you to me—I find two payments, but neither exactly corresponding with the amount alleged. At his Request I write to ask if you have any Memo or receipt which will shew the fact. He waits in town untill return of mail to receive your answer."
