Mr Porter and I balanced accounts with Mr Richard Stone and received of him 6.19.2 in full for interest due on a bond due to Will Piper deceased and John Piper, out of which said sum £4 is due to John Piper, excepting a bill for doctoring of 2/6 which we outset; the remainder of 2.19.2 I have in my own care, and I accordingly have sent John Piper by Thomas Bristow the £4 (including the bill of 2/6).
