If these Endeavours do not evince the Positi[on]
be pleased to mention to me the Doubt, that
I may strive to dispel the Cloud which
envelops the Truth I am yours &c
Robert, Carter

May 11th
1769

Dear Madam,

Upon reviewing the Bills of Exchange you
paid to me last March I find that William Hoxton's
Draft is not dated, therefor do inclose it
in this Letter, hoping you will direct Mr James
Brooke to advise the Drawer of the Error, &
to prevail on him to correct it. And when he
shall have returned the Bill to you, be
pleased to forward it to me by the Post, on
otherwise.

Colonel Archibald Cary asked me whether you
would lend him £4000 sterling He, Mr
Thomas Mann Randolph & Mr John Wayles
passing their joint Bond for the same. My
Reply occasioned the inclosed Letter to be
written, to which I beg leave to refer,
believing it will explain the Colonels Intention
& Desire The Gentleman named above
have considerable possessions, but I am not
acquainted of the tenure by which they
hold them; nor of their private Engagements
I am instructed to say that other Gentleman
of fortune will join in the Bond, if further
Security shall be required, I am, Madam
Yours &cca Robert Carter

To, Mrs, Tasker
at Annapolis
