SIR,
PHILADELPHIA,

IT is with very great concern that we inform you of the sudden and unexpected Death of our late Friend and Partner, Mr. Samuel Inglis, who departed this Life, after a short Illness, in the Night of the 13th Instant. This worthy Man has conducted the Affairs of our late Society, under the Firm of Samuel Inglis & Co. entirely to our Content, and, so far as we know, to the Satisfaction of all those that were interested in his Transactions. We lament his Loss most sincerely.

After paying the Tribute due to his Memory, it became necessary to supply his Place, which we have done, by taking into our Partnership, Mr. John Swanwick, a young Gentleman that we bred up under Mr. Morris, who has since employed him in a very extensive Scene of publick and private Business, in the execution of which he has answered the most sanguine Expectations that were formed of him, and proved that his Integrity, Application and Talents entitle him to our utmost Confidence. We have concluded to introduce our Names into the new Firm, and pray your Attention upon all Occasions, to that of Willing, Morris and Swanwick.

We are, Respectfully, / Sir, / Your most obedient / and most humble Servants,

Thos. Willing

Robt Morris
