recommends Mr Thomas Griffin organ maker in
Fenchurch-Street, and if you be not attached
to another maker, be pleased to employ him
with this caution that he first satisfy you that his

a Fifteenth
therefor it is thought will not be so costly
If furniture be stowed in a Vessel where
where the air is in a manner excluded the
property of glue is greatly defeated in
long voyages and I would pay an ex
traordinary freight to have the organ put
in a cool part If the Randolph Captain
Robert Walker do not sail before the In
strument be completed, put it under his
Care whose diligence I commend but if he
be come away then send the organ &cca to
me by a careful & diligent Captain I am
