Dear Sir,





If I had thought of troubling you to hold a Court on Thursday next, be afsured I should notwithstanding the hurry I was in, have sent you an immediate answer to your last Favour.

Mr Scott has gone through Allen’s Affair I believe extremely well. So as you do but let me hear from you, I care not what Tackle you make Use of.  Mr Haviland sets an high that is true Value on your excellent Ancestor’s Print.  We have had and still have a great Number of Persons now; it is said £7000.  Mr Caulet who officiated as an Afsistant to Mr Nash, still acts as Master of the Ceremonies, he is old, but being of French Extraction he will be lively ad Finum.

                                    I am,

                                                Dr. Sir,

                                                            Your faithful Friend, G Scott

Yourself and Lady.
