same tenour & date   And that you may
partly guess at that difference, I beg
leave to state the following account My

addressed to Mr John Hyndman
requires some explanation: When I
directed it, intended to have con

clude the bill; or not, in the Settle
ment thou shall make, as may
be most agreeable.
