As I could not put all I had to say I thought I wou[l]d insert this slip with the conclusion on it that is if you want to know any more particulars I am ready at any time to wait on you at your house and as to you abusing me for it, I cannot beleive it untill I see it although I have been told it would only be a grand joke for your and Laws privately to chuckle over and I had better be mute or I should be some of these nights, but I am determined to risk all this and throw the case before you and if you have any thing to say to me I live close to ’s and shall be there if wanted to defend what I have stated in the paper hoping you will do your best to get them to pay me for which I shall ever be thankful and remain Yours
Respectfully . Thomas Rawcliff
P. S.
And Sir, I shall warn all the English to beware of the way buisness is carried on in here fearless of any consequences [p. [5]]
