Sir, Grosr: Square. 4th. Sepr: 1785.

I have recd. your letter of the 30th. September—August 30th. I suppose was meant, & have written to Messrs. Willinks & Co. desiring them to let you remain in the Hotel for the present—You have not, as you suppose, fallen under any displeasure of mine, & I still persist in my intention of recommending you to the American Minister wn: he arrives. But. I have given the whole power of the hotel to Messrs: Willinks & Staphorsts: you must therefore obtain their Consent to live in it—and certainly it must be without any wages, or any other expences of any sort to the U: S: You know I told you wn. you left me here that yr: salary & all other expences to the U: S: and to me must cease—

I am, Sir, / Yrs: &c: &c
