|Sir||Paris 26th. June 1786|
I am much obliged to you for the trouble which you have been So Kind to take relating M Barclay’s bills, I am Surprised that you find no advice from him of any bill for $100.—besides these which you are So good as to point out, the 24th. 8ber. I paid him the amount of two bills, the one for $200, which was accepted by you Sir & the other for $100,—the one about which I am now making inquirier, & which Mr Barclay advised you to have drawn at the Same time, & by the Same letter with that of $200,—I think both these bills were dated from the 24th. 8ber. or the day before, be pleased there fore to look on his letters of advice, & expecially on that which informed you about that date that he had drawn the bill for $200 to my order.
I beg you will excuse this further trouble, & I am with very great regard. / Sir Your most obedient / humble Servant
