Hon'ble Sir,

With the utmost respect permit me to apply to your office for the sum of fifty pounds due to me on my arrival in London on the 20th Oct last for Mrs. J. ERITH's passage from the Cape of Good Hope. I should not have troubled you but I have been referred by that Lady to your Office and as I am to sail for New Orleans in a few days I sincerely trust you will take it into consideration as early as possible as I have much need for the amount. I take the liberty of inclosing to you her first bill of exchange and an early answer will much oblidge, most honor'd Sir

Your humble servant

Joseph FELL
